This unit is meant to teach analysis through an examination of the movie Blood Diamond (2006) and the book A Long Way Gone (2007). It emphasizes close reading/viewing strategies, and has students complete various types of viewing, reading, and writing responses.

It is well suited to students in high school - the topic of child soldiers can be fairly sensitive. It is designed for a grade 9 or 10 (academic or non-academic) or 11 or 12 (non-academic) class, but can be easily adapted to suit any ability level.

• Quotation Tracking Sheet template, for students to record relevant quotations from the text (quotations to be used on their responses)
