Students will read and discuss in a matter-of-fact way the following texts which tackle some sensitive topics. Some of the topics tackled will be racism, segregation, child slavery, rape, war, murder, suicide, and violence. The books tell stories that include these elements and the students will discuss these issues in a matter-of-fact way in context to when/where it happened or is depicted as happening. It is important for learners to know that these issues exist even if they don't have a personal connection to one or any of the topics. These books are taught to high school/secondary school aged children all over the world and are considered to be age appropriate with the knowledge of the sensitive issues that will be covered.
