Ever since Amelia Earhart and her plane disappeared on July 2, 1937, people have wanted to know more about this remarkable woman. Amelia Earhart follows the charismatic aviator from her first sight of an airplane at the age of ten to the last radio transmission she made before she vanished. Illustrated with original artworks, contemporary photographs, quotes, and details, this is a great introduction to the famous pilot.

Amelia Earhart: the legend of the lost aviator is a great biography by Shelley Tanaka with illustrations by David Craig which has won Orbis Pictus award. I chose this book, initially, because of it‘s beautiful illustration on the front cover. It is a great book that talks about Amelia‘s early life and how she became fascinated with air travel.

Haleysantucci I think this is a great book for students to partner read so that they can collaborate on their opinions of Amelia Earhart. I would use UDL principles 7.1 by allowing the students to choose their own partners and 8.3 because they‘d be collaborating with in their one-on-one partnership. 4y
Haleysantucci I would utilize ESOL strategy number 17 and2 because the book would have visual representation of what the story was saying and they‘d be working in a small group. 4y
