My seventh grade homeroom will be participating in a unit about the integration of the Little Rock Nine into an all-white school in Arkansas. They will be evaluating the choices people made during this time period, and analyzing the power of one person's actions. This novel shows the depths of human understanding, prejudice, and consequences of human behavior. The unit includes poetry, video footage, class discussions and creative writing.
The whole unit is centered around the novel "Warriors Don't Cry" by Melba Patillo Beals, one of the Little Rock Nine. I am requesting a class set of 35 novels to be used this year and in following years by my classroom. This is a wonderful novel that my students last year rated as one of their favorites!
