Association 3: Back To The Tenement Museum, The Gumpertz Apartment

We discussed the Tenement Museum before with Debbie's sixth graders, but here's another approach. In this one I narrated part of The Tenement Museum guide that dealt with the Gumpertz apartment. I'd love to have a library of student narrated read aloud books like this or better yet a collection of NYC celebrity read alouds streamed by the NYCDOE over nycenet. Reminders of Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia reading the comics over the radio during a newspaper strike. Reminders of a mayor with compassion and vision.
