Introduction to Unit Letter
Dear Parent/Guardian of English 11 student:
We are preparing to embark on a very important thematic unit in our English 11 classroom. For the next two weeks, we will be studying a variety of works dealing with social justice. It is our hope that students will greatly benefit from this unit, and become aware of worldly issues that affect them beyond the walls of the classroom.
Within this unit, we anticipate some minor exposure to sensitive topics. Students may be asked to discuss topics dealing with abortion, slavery, nationalism, ethnic inequities, etc. Poetry, prose, music, and film will all be utilized throughout the unit. If you and/or your child are uncomfortable dealing with some of the materials we are presenting, please contact us.
Again, this has proven to be a successful and liberating unit in the past. Students have provided positive feedback on all of the works studied within this unit. Hopefully your child will feel the same.
Thank you again for your continual support!
