My Students

My students are engaged, inquisitive, and strong-willed students. These students are juniors and seniors at an alternative high school. This school supports students that are credit deficient and haven't found success in traditional high schools. The students have also personally experienced many of the challenges that are discussed throughout the novel we are reading, The Hate U Give.

As we explore relevant issues through this novel, these students have developed their reader identities and grown as individuals, while exploring the ways that we can positively contribute to our community.

My Project

My two English 4 classes will be coming together to attend the movie The Hate U Give in theaters on the last day of our quarter.

While initially intimidated by the length of the book, the students have been excitedly talking and asking about the release of the upcoming movie.

The students have worked hard each day as we attempt to finish this novel in such a short time period. As we read, we are also exploring the serious topics discussed throughout this novel, including: racism, police brutality, and injustice. They have participated in rich discussions connecting it to their own experiences and beliefs, as we also explored the responses to injustice featured in this book.

We are in the final push of this novel, and I hope to help encourage students to keep up the incredible work and discussions as we finish this book together. Knowing that we will be attending this movie will be a key piece to sustaining their interest and motivation.

The students will then compare the novel to the movie adaptation, and explore how the movie does or does not accurately represent the themes and author's choices that we have identified throughout our reading. These students are building: their reader identities, their individual perspectives, and a necessary sense of community as we come together for this experience.
