Product Description
This is a close reading guide to the book All-American Boys by Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely.
An incident of police brutality brings together a black student and a white student as they each learn about the situations surrounding police brutality from various perspectives.

This is a MUST READ in the middle school classroom. All-American Boys will give your students a different view of police brutality that will truly drive home the issues presented in this novel that are affecting our country every day. This book is a springboard that presents so many wonderful opportunities for reading, writing, and conversation moments within your classroom.

As close reading is such an important part of the Common Core, students need to be taught to be analytic as they read texts. This unit includes writing/discussion questions for each chapter (answer key included), as well as larger-scale writing assessments. The classroom discussion questions deeply examine the themes of the novel as well as inferences that can be made as students read. I have used this unit with gifted grade 7 all the way through grade 11. I have used this unit in special education as well as regular education classrooms, and it has been successful across the board. It includes everything you need! There are chapter summaries, vocabulary activities, and class discussion questions for each chapter. I have used the questions for homework, classwork, or just as a springboard for Socratic discussions and literature circles. Please feel free to ask questions before your purchase. AND...don't forget to leave feedback. It's like free TPT money!
