Product Description

This is an interactive and culturally responsive novel study for Angie Thomas's The Hate U Give. The unit explores modern issues of police brutality, racism, and the justice system through high level analysis questions, writing prompts, and extension activities/articles.

The first items included are chapter-by-chapter questions (1 set per every 1-2 chapters). These are meant to go beyond simply checking for comprehension, asking for opinions, analysis, and higher level responses. These serve as great starting points for class discussion.

Next, there are ten writing prompts where students reflect on their own experiences and how they relate to the novel. The prompts help students to understand the emotions and actions of characters on a deeper level.

Also included are extension activities and articles, along with graphic organizers, which help to connect the novel to modern society and culture. Some examples:

  • Reading and analyzing a debate about the Black Lives Matter movement between two former Seattle Seahawks players
  • Reading about the psychology of an effective protest along with various examples, in order to design and plan a movement as a group
  • Examining real-world cases which have sparked the Black Lives Matter movement
  • Reading about what it is like to be a minority in a predominantly white and privileged school
  • Watching a TED talk about "code-switching" and exploring its effect on people of color
  • And much more!

Finally there are quick chapter-by-chapter pop quizzes. These are meant to check that students have read and understood each part.
