Product Description

All American Boys is a timely, thought provoking novel that captures the attention of students. While reading this novel with my high school students, I found a lack of quality resources available. So, I created my own - now available to you! Each lesson has been engaging for my own students.

With this unit, you will receive the following resources:

Anticipation Guide

A thought provoking anticipation guide for students to complete prior to reading.  

This anticipation guide requires students to think about important issues and explain how they feel. Facilitates worthwhile classroom discussions.

Discussion Questions

Chapter by chapter questions encouraging students to analyze and make connections to the text.

Crossword Puzzles

8 crossword puzzles that students may complete to review each chapter. Crosswords are organized by chapter and contain basic questions directly from the text of the book.

Vocabulary

Vocabulary practice broken down by chapter.  Requires students to locate a word and use context clues to provide a definition.

Protest Project

This is lesson asks students to create a sign for the protest at the end of the novel. There are also discussion questions for them to explain their sign and analyze signs that were present at the protest.

Art Project

Lesson is designed to briefly introduce students to the artistic influences of Rashad: The Family Circus and Aaron Douglas, while having students answer questions about the role of art and, finally, create their own scene from the novel. This lesson includes a PowerPoint, Discussion Questions, and Scene Illustration.

Soundtrack Project

This project asks students to make text connections from their favorite songs to the novel as they create a soundtrack for novel.  The project is organized in a chart format.

Chapter Summaries

Brief summaries for each chapter that are easy for students to read.  Perfect for absent students or struggling readers.

Author Talk/Interview

This set of questions follows the Library of Congress webcast talk by Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely.  The talk can be found on YouTube or the Library of Congress website. https://youtu.be/WJmSV5uFySc

Author Discussion Questions

This is the set of questions found in the back of the novel All American Boys.  These questions were written by Dr. Rose Brock. They have simply been formatted with lines for student answers.

THANK YOU!
