Product Description
These seven lessons encourage students to write with greater profundity when analyzing an argument. Frida Kahlo painted her “Dos Fridas,” among other paintings. The student will learn to write more profoundly by analyzing the painting and passages from Kate Braverman’s novel, The Incantation of Frida K. Students will show mastery of the standards at the end of the lesson through a rhetorical précis, a Socratic Seminar, and a written timed essay scored on an AP style rubric. There are three student samples available for your students to read, that also come with written commentary from an AP reader.

A short film, “Colores,” as well as the documentary, The Life and Times of Frida Kahlo and numerous clips from the 2002 film Frida are in this resource. Links to different audios and videos depicting Frida Kahlo’s art are available to your students. There is a lesson devoted to Lila Downs, musician in the film Frida, including English and Spanish versions of her song Cumbia de Mole. There is a lesson, which invites students to prepare their favorite recipes in front of the camera. Frida Kahlo’s New York Times op-ed 2017 revelation of her harassment from Harvey Weinstein and a study of Pat Mora's poem, "Dear Frida" are in the resource

These lessons fit any Honors Literature class, Pre-AP, American Literature, AP English Language or Literature class to prepare students for AP English Language exams, Common Core extended response assessments, American Literature Course exams, the SAT and ACT essay and critical thinking activities.

There are sources for teaching the Socratic Seminar, as the lessons act as explication for the argument. The packet includes complete lessons, Common Core standards, essential and key questions.
