This teacher guide was developed to incorporate higher-order thinking skills and ask questions about the reading to challenge students to think critically. I developed it using a variety of levels of Bloom's taxonomy - from knowledge-level questions to analysis-level, primarily. This book addresses a lot of prejudices and would be an excellent close reading for discussing the origins of many current social issues.
