Product Description
I like to launch my narrative nonfiction unit every year by drawing on students' background knowledge of "hybrids". Discussing hybrids like "ligers", mules, and hybrid cars helps them understand narrative nonfiction in a new way.

Many students have heard the story of Rosa Parks throughout the years, but Nikki Giovanni's "Rosa" is uniquely beautiful. My students and I discuss how Giovanni is a poet and is, therefore, a master of word choice. The vocabulary in the book is rich.

This lesson is aligned with Common Core State Standards (CCSS) as well as Virginia SOLs.
