Groups of four-six students will participate in Literature Circles by reading and discussing a novel together. With our library’s copies of Laurie Halse Anderson’s "Speak" and Sherman Alexie’s "The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian", students will be able to pick from the requested four new release titles. The unit will incorporate a mix of reader response protocol, structured analysis and discussion, and comparisons between their novel and the ones other students are reading. At the culmination of this unit, students will write an original pastiche (here, a short narrative based on connective themes like 'overcoming adversity', 'familial identity' and 'grit' that imitates the style their author uses). The selected novels will enable all students to not only affirm their identity and see others but also find commonalities in American teenage experiences. The novels’ protagonists are all American teenagers from diverse ethnic, geographic and socioeconomic backgrounds. These authors have been lauded for tackling difficult subjects such as loss, Islamophobia, and incarceration with humor and grace.
