Average rating:4.9Number of reviews:(412)
Read the personal memoir, I Am Malala, to learn the non-fiction story of world events that led to the shooting and survival of Malala Yousafzai. Learners make connections with historic events and the author's personal reflection.

Class Experience

Literary Elements to analyze:
Context: Cultural & Political
References (to poetry, books, and music)
I have taught history and reading for over 15 years. This book combines the history of factual events, with a personal narrative that describes one person's viewpoint. This book has been on reading lists for elementary, middle, and high school students. The focus in this class is the timeline of events and the study of the literary elements in the story. The book and course are not intended to make a political statement, as much as a personal one, in fact, Malala herself bears no hatred for what happened.

The Young Reader's edition of I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
The novel includes descriptions of violence in some chapters. There are discussions of people being threatened (Malala and her father) and killed. The reason for these sections is because they are events that actually happened. In reading about these acts of violence, readers gain a better understanding of the courage and bravery that Malala showed the world as she continued to speak out for her cause. The acts of violence are in the story to thrill or to scare readers. They are included as a telling of events.  There are no descriptions of torture or details of the violence. It includes mention of people being beaten publically and others left dead in the town square.

   Learners need to see the relevance of what they learn. Then, they...
