and become more aware of other peoples' struggles,

my writing." What connections can you find

History of Your Shoes
site exploring the history of footwear shows how
and why styles have changed over the years. With
a partner, write the text and find or create illustrations
for a page that could be added to this site,
one dedicated to modern styles. Be sure
to explain why certain styles came into fashion
and why others are considered out of style
by your peers. You might include an illustration
of Uncle Luisís shoes from the story.
