Teachers and Parents,
This unit was created under the express intention of promoting social justice, equality and tolerance of all individuals. As such I have included community service projects like starting a GSA at a school site as well as ideas for multicultural festivals and presentations to go along with the plot questions, vocabulary and essay topics that I have for each short story. In addition to these, my lesson plans invite kids to discuss difficult issues such as the added academic pressure and social stigmas that come from being born to African-American professional parents in non-threatening group settings prior to reading the stories for which these are central thematic topics. This is my Anticipation Guide section and is a strategy aimed at motivating and facilitating the reading success of lower-achievement students.
I offer this product for free as part of the Teachers Pay Teachers Teach for Social Justice Program. I do have a similar activities for the entire collection. Feel free to check out my store and follow me for more educational products.
