This is a 3 (or more) day unit for Alice Walker's Everyday Use. It begins with an internet activity for students to evaluate her work and the short story. The importance of African quilting and a webquest activity is also included, as well as wrap up questions and connections on the short story. Allowing students to make quilts is a great activity to follow this mini-unit. My students make them to be donated to the local women's shelter for newborns.
