"The Scribe" by Kristen Hunter is a wonderful fiction piece to read with students when one is introducing the "Aha Moment" to students. Although there are other "Notice and Note" signposts one may focus on with this short story, the "aha moments" help lend themselves to the reader's workshop model and in turn, could lead students to identifying conflict, theme, etc. in their own independent reading novels. Even if just teaching this short story in a closed setting, it is an excellent way to focus on the protagonist's "aha moment" at the end of the story. This would work wonderfully in conjunction with social studies and the Civil Rights Movement.
