Ghost Boys: A Study On Shifting Perspectives-Flex Class

Using Ghost Boys to Study Social Injustice, Shifting Perspectives, Characterization and Plot Development

Class experience

I began this study of social injustice with the book Maniac Magee. The Book Ghost Boys was introduced and recommended to me by an Outschool parent. As I began working with her child and listening to questions, reflection and wonderment, I realized there was a need to give this opportunity to other students out there who may not find a teacher willing to tackle this difficult, yet, real world topic that affects the novel's target audience.  
Students will use Google Classroom to post assignments and respond to journal writings of their peers. I will monitor all comments and posts. Students will complete video responses, as well as listen to video feedback and self- reflection of their own work and projects. 
The novel, Ghost Boys by Jewell Rhodes Parker is available in E-copy, audio book and in paperback. 

I will use the e-copy for the course, but there will not be access to the entire book during each course unless the student has their own copy.

In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
We will not have group discussions about politics, law or media. Journals and feedback will allow for inquiry and guidance toward future research.
I will show a piece of the Trayvon Martin trial during the video lesson. 

There are some pieces in the book that are graphic in detail of Emmett Till's story.  Excerpts can be sent by request and I would encourage parents to read and review the book as well. I read it with my 10 year old daughter after teaching it.
