A Few Additional Notes

There are three writing assignments in this unit, each with the purpose of informing, persuading, or expressing personal opinions. The detailed writing assignment sheets guide students through the assignments. The first assignment is to inform (and to tie-in the introductory activity relating to Dr. King's "I Have a Dream" speech). Students compare Raisin to Dr. King's speech, finding ways in which the fictional play exemplifies many of the ideas Dr. King mentions in his speech. The second assignment is to persuade. Following the reports, discussion and library research, students pretend they are Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. alive today and write the speech they believe he would deliver to America this year. The third assignment is to give students a chance to simply express their own opinions. They are to write a composition in which they express their own personal "dreams" and outline a plan by which those dreams could realistically be obtained. 

LitPlan Uses

These materials are geared for whole class use but are very easily adapted for independent study work, lit circles or book groups, home school use, or tutoring. If you have never taught this book before, this manual will give you a great foundation of materials on a variety of levels. If you have taught this book before, you might like to know that many veteran teachers have told us they have found our LitPlan Teacher Pack manuals to be much more thorough and more helpful than other materials they have used.
