Product Description
This unit is designed around the concepts of racism, prejudice, and discrimination of all forms. It is NOT a full instructional unit.

The unit is designed for students to read a novel independently over four weeks with an additional 1-2 weeks for the culminating projects.

What is included:
- A list of 22 young-adult/adult novels for students to choose from. I selected novels that were available in my classroom, our school's library, or the public library, so your availability may be slightly different. The novels are divided into the following categories: Modern Stories of African-Americans, Modern Stories of International Characters, and Issues of Race in Classic Novels.
Examples of novel titles: The Absolutely True Story of a Part-Time Indian, Their Eyes Were Watching God, and The Latte Rebellion.
- A unit guide for students that includes a rough schedule for reading and ALL assignments connected to this unit. Students complete one reader response + one other assignment each week.

Assignments included:
- 8 reader response journal prompts (with the expectation that students complete 1 per week for 4 weeks, so they have some choice)
- Character map assignment with instructions and linked examples
- Vocabulary word list assignment with instructions
- Interview with a character assignment with instructions
- Short answer book quiz assignment with instructions
- 3 options for creative assignments to be completed after the book has been read (book soundtrack, setting map, or movie casting) with instructions
- Book talk presentation assignment to be completed after the book has been read with instructions AND rubric for grading
