This Anticipation Guide provides students with the opportunity to discuss a variety of topic statements that connect to the novel Esperanza Rising ,as well as any novel or theme connected to it (culture, belonging).
Students determine their feelings on the statement as: True, False, or Neutral.
They revisit this guide at the end of the unit to determine if their feelings have changed and must explain/cite evidence why.
I use this at the launch of the unit to inspire students to think. I then use several statements to hold a Philosophical Chairs Discussion in the classroom. (See powerpoint to accompany this guide for Philosophical Chairs) or even a Socratic Seminar.
