This package includes the text of Coates's short essay "Black Boy Interrupted" and many activities to do a close rhetorical analysis of the text. This is a good way to prepare students to read Between the World and Me, but also to get them to critically examine non-fiction reading and the legacy of power and oppression within the United States. Even if you are not teaching Between the World and Me, this is a important short essay about the legacy of racism and white-supremacy continuing in our country today.

There are 6 pages of documents that include a set of reading analysis questions, rhetorical appeals graphic organizer, quick entry slip question, main idea organizer and short writing assignment. The writing assignment comes with a quick rubric at the bottom of the handout. The assignments give students practice with logos, ethos, pathos, and kairos while picking out specific word choices and their connotations. All of thees assignments have successfully been used with IB/MYP high school students.
