Finding Yourself

Unit Overview:

This unit introduces students to the idea of personal challenges. Students will begin to understand that personal challenges can be influenced through different factors such as environment, culture, gender, age, race, etc.

Skills in this unit include dramatic elements, point-of-view, theme, and text features.

Students will have a day or two to discuss the summer reading text and then they will move into Lorraine Hansberry’s play A Raisin in the Sun, that will culminate in an essay comparing the themes from the play with the themes from the summer reading text.
