Book Club: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
A four week discussion-based course of the young adult novel "The Hate U Give" in which students explore topics including identity, race, gender, the Black Lives Matter movement, and language
In this four week course, learners will read and discuss the New York Times Best-Selling novel "The Hate U Give" by Angie Thomas. Our discussion will be structured as a literature circle, in which each student is responsible for a particular topic relating to the novel each week and should prepare three discussion questions to bring to the group. Throughout the course, students will also create a short creative project to express their personal perspective and understanding of the novel. On...
Learners will discuss, using specific examples, how complex and sensitive topics, such as race, ethnicity, identity, gender, and police brutality, manifest in the novel "The Hate U Give" and in our current world. Learners will explain, in writing, their own perspective and understanding of race, ethnicity, identity, gender, and police brutality as they appear in the novel and in our current world. Learners will identify appropriate evidence to include in a note-taking graphic organizer. Learners will identify key details in a text that relate to a topic. Learners will explain how key details text relate to a topic. Learners will analyze how an author's word choice and style impact the message they convey.

Learners will interpret evidence to support a claim during discussion. Learners will demonstrate deeper understanding of the novel through a creative project of their choosing.
Masters in the Art of Teaching- English, Language Arts, English Language Learning education, Bilingual education Due to the sensitive and complex nature of these topics, we will work together as a collaborative group in class one to establish a set of norms that will help every learner understand the foundational rules for discussion throughout the class to promote safety, civility, dignity, and respect for each other and the topics we will discuss. Further, in first two classes, students will receive background information and instruction relating to systemic racism, ethnic and gender discrimination, and the impact of these, along with poverty, on young people in America. As a white woman, I am holding this class to uplift a story that is not my own, and I am dedicated to creating and maintaining a safe, respectful space to educate learners on these topics. Discrimination, hate-speech, incivility, racism, and sexism will not be tolerated.
