"Keep you in the dark; you know they all pretend."
-The Pretender by The Foo Fighters

In this unique glimpse of freedom of speech, respect, and patriotism, freshman Philip Malloy is kept from joining the track team because of his failing grades in English class. Convinced that the teacher (Miss Narwin) simply doesn't like him. In turn, Philip devises a plan to get moved out of her class. By breaking the school's rule of remaining silent during the playing of the national anthem, he creates a domino effect which garners the nation's attention.

Wake Up Sunshine is proud to bring this "look yourself in the mirror" literary unit. This guide allows students to engage at the higher levels of thinking (analysis and synthesis), while encouraging creativity with its interactive activities. At the culmination of the reading, there's also after reading activities, which include Making Learning Visible activities, music and lyrical correlation, and differentiation writing prompts.
