Study Guides and Lesson Plans for "Out of the Dust"

Out of the Dust Study Guide and Lesson PlanAbout Out of the Dust by Karen Hesse:
When Billie Jo is just fourteen, she must endure heart-wrenching ordeals that no child should have to face.  The quiet strength she displays while dealing with unspeakable loss is as surprising as it is inspiring.

Written in free verse, this Newbery award-winning story is set in the heart of the Great Depression.  It chronicles Oklahoma's staggering dust storms, and the environmental — and emotional — turmoil they leave in their path.  An unforgettable tribute to hope and inner strength.

Reading level: Ages 9-12
