PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Glory Be by Augusta Scattergood is a great story for upper elementary and middle school students. Glory, an opinionated eleven year-old in 1964 Mississippi, is very concerned when the community pool shuts down shortly after Northerners arrive to register Black voters and help integrate the town. Her concern for the swimming pool shifts as she comes to realize the disparities and hatred present in her community. It is historical fiction, based on the author’s experience as a child in Mississippi during the Freedom Summer.

This book is a great stand-alone book or a fabulous companion to a unit on the Civil Rights Movement or racism more generally. It's also a great jumping off point for discussing character traits and development. It makes a wonderful novel unit for the whole class or for small reading groups. It works well with fourth, fifth, sixth grade independent reading levels or can be used as a read aloud or literature circles, groups of advanced third graders.
