Submitted: March 1, 2003
an English or social studies assignment, near St.Patrick's Day would be good,

out a story about a parent, grandparent or further back. They should write it
up and bring it back in and share it with the class.
have had stories about a sea captain, a boy's sister who was in Manhattan on 9-11,
an ancestor who came over on the Mayflower, etc.
