Product Description
Using an excerpt from The Autobiography of Malcom X, the young Malcolm is dissuaded by his teacher from pursuing a career in law. The teacher’s actions are based on racial bias. Students will review important rhetorical strategies; close read and annotate the passage, view supporting video clips and listen to a public radio story profiling a white Colorado teacher who learned to overcome her own biases in the classroom when educating children of color. A link to 6 articles from The New York Times Room for Debate series, “How to Diversify Teaching” is provided. This lesson prepares students for AP Language exams; Common Core extended response assessments, the SAT/ACT and critical thinking activities.

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. The packet includes complete lessons, common core standards, and essential and key questions.

Key words: argument, American Literature, Socratic Seminar, writing, memoir, AP Language, critical thinking, Malcolm X, annotations, rhetorical strategies, race, teaching, diversity in teaching
