Product Description
I use this lesson to address the "N-Word" for such texts as Huck Finn & To Kill a Mockingbird. The PowerPoint is an interactive lecture that incorporates a Norman Rockwell painting, a poem, an embedded video clip of NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley discussing how the word is used, commentary from critics such as Langston Hughes, and a history of the word's etymology. The lesson concludes with a defend, challenge, qualify journal/essay response regarding the word be censored.
