Introducing Malala Yousafzai: Informational Texts, Activities begins with a pre-reading activity, a survey regarding activism. Many students may not be familiar with the meaning of the word are even how activism relates to many historical figures they might have already studied (such as Martin Luther King, Jr.). Discussion of the topics on the graphic organizer is a great way to introduce the concept and discuss the forms activism takes. Later, after the students have read the passages, it would be beneficial to again refer to the topic and talk about why Malala is considered an activist and the methods that she has used and uses today. (The activist activity page is not numbered so that it can be used at any time, before, during or after the passages are read.)
This resource also includes three reading passages, taking up one side of a page. The texts cover Malala’s life as a young child, as an education activist, her shooting by the Taliban, her addressing the UN, and her awards, including the Nobel Peace Prize. It concludes with her continued advocacy of education for girls everywhere in the world.
The right side of each page includes questions and language work. The resource concludes with a short vocabulary quiz that covers all three texts. Students read each sentence and choose the word (found in the passages, in order of appearance) that best matches the underlined word or expression.
A full answer key is supplied for all objective work.
