This lesson introduces the novel "Bronx Masquerade" by Nikki Grimes through the use of a prezi, which include video clips and visuals.
Prezi is similar to a power point presentation, but better in so many ways.
*34 slide prezi
*Worksheet that follows the prezi - 2 pages
I have used this lesson with my 8th grade students, both mild/moderate sped., EL, and general education students. The video clips and visuals make this more accessible for a variety of learners, hitting many modalities. My students had a lot fun with this and enjoyed the lesson. I have 49 minute periods and used 1 period for this lesson. This lesson would also be appropriate for 6th and 9th grade students.
I hope this helps your students get excited about reading Bronx Masquerade.
**This is a zip file, so you will need to know how to unzip. I have a free download on how to do this and tpt also provides instructions on how to unzip. If you are using a PC, getting the prezi downloaded may take several minutes, so please be patient. If you are on a mac it is almost instantaneous.
