PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness is a book by Michelle Alexander, a civil rights litigator and legal scholar. The book discusses race-related issues specific to African-American males and mass incarceration in the United States — though Alexander notes that the discrimination faced by African-American males is also prevalent among other minorities and socio-economically disadvantaged populations. Alexander's central premise, from which the book derives its title, is that "mass incarceration is, metaphorically, the New Jim Crow.

These lessons examine the arguments against today’s mass incarcerations. The use of multimedia and interviews help teach the context for the lesson. There is a highlighting exercise for reinforcing the rhetorical triangle.

In this resource there is a unique detailed rubric that can be used to score Socratic Seminars in a way that encourages organic fluid discussions. In the guide there is a step by step explanation on how to conduct a fish-bowl discussion with the rubric. An assessment essay from the 2004 AP English Language essay Question #2 is used which also has links to a rubric and student essay samples. Complete Common Core standards and Essential and Key Questions are included. All lessons have an opening, work session, and closing.
