PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Who was Claudette Colvin? Most people know that Rosa Parks refused to give up her bus seat to a white person and helped stop segregation on buses in Alabama, but did you know that Claudette Colvin did the same thing when she was only 15? And she did it BEFORE Rosa Parks? Twice Toward Justice is Claudette’s story: part memoir, part historical account, the text alternates between Claudette’s own words and the author’s explanations of background figures and events. It includes some primary documents: arrest records and newspaper articles that help tell the story.

This 70+ page unit developed by My Reading Resources divides the book into five sections to encourage slower, close reading. It will aid you in meeting several goals of CCSS. Worksheets on Latin roots and a tip sheet with strategies for close reading (can be used as a poster or page for student notebooks) are included.
This unit includes:
Anticipation guide
Student Packet - 19 pages of short answer questions, word work, discussion questions and writing prompts designed to address many CCSS standards for 7th grade.
Foldable - make a Latin dictionary
Vocabulary word cards/definitions to match
