Product Description

To meet the needs of the whole child, it is vital that we infuse character building into our standards-based curriculum.

In this differentiated, standards-aligned lesson, students will close read Malala Yousafzai’s Nobel Peace Prize speech, and through close examination, determine whether Malala is a victim, bystander or an upstander.

Teacher Tips:

Begin with a brief lesson on what it means to be a victim, bystander or an upstander (see “Victims, Bystanders and Upstanders Notes”). Explain that students are about to learn about a young Pakistani girl, who presented this speech in 2014.

Model annotating the “Our Class Example” page and stress the importance of word choice. Annotated Answer Key included for “Our Class Example.”

Break students down into a Jigsaw. Students can work in 3’s to summarize and close-read their assigned excerpt.

Differentiation Tip: You may want to group students based on reading level, with Passage A being the most complex and Passage D being the least complex.

After students have finished, have groups read their excerpts present their findings. The exit ticket allows students to reflect on the lesson and for your own formative assessment.
