I have been a public school teacher for several years and many students struggle with their own personal identities. I have witnessed that all students can develop a great deal of empathy by understanding their place in society and how all of us are connected. As a middle and high school English teacher, I have found that most students have insecurities and struggles with their identity. Reading about struggles similar to their own help students become aware of these shared struggles through classroom discussions. My years as a teacher have often been in schools with diverse groups of students from all walks of life and these types of stories, I have found, help students see that they aren't alone in these feelings.
Students will be given reading assignments each week to complete prior to each class meeting.
Possible writing instrument and notebook for note-taking during class.
Assessment will be immediate teacher feedback during each course session as well as responses to discussion questions provided by the teacher.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Students will be reading about, and discussing, sensitive topics that are currently at the forefront of the national conversation regarding racial inequalities and social justice. The story is told from the perspective of a young black girl and her attempts to understand her identity and her place in society as a member of the various groups she has been assigned to by society. This is a story of a young person attempting to break free from those labels while also trying to understand them.
Students will need to acquire the eBook version of the novel, Piecing Me Together, by Renee Watson. You can find the book on Scribd.com or Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Piecing-Me-Together-RenÃ©-Watson-ebook/dp/B01NGUHJSI/
