Stamped for Kids
RACE. Uh-oh. The R-word.
But actually talking about race is one of the most important things to learn how to do.
Adapted from the groundbreaking bestseller Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You, this book takes readers on a journey from present to past and back again. Kids will discover where racist ideas came from, identify how they impact America today, and meet those who have fought racism with antiracism. Along the way, they’ll learn how to identify and stamp out racist thoughts in their own lives.
Ibram X. Kendi’s research, Jason Reynolds’s and Sonja Cherry-Paul’s writing, and Rachelle Baker’s art come together in this vital read, enhanced with a glossary, timeline, and more.
Critical Literacy: Unlocking Contemporary Fiction
This unit is unlike what most of us experienced in our English classes as teens. It’s not an all-class novel unit, nor a classic interpretation unit, nor a canonical text unit. Like the novel at the heart of this unit—Ibi Zoboi’s Pride: A Pride and Prejudice Remix—this unit offers a new take on an old classic.
