Dear Martin  and Exploring the Black Experience in America

Parents need to know that Nic Stone's Dear Martin tells the story of an Ivy League-bound African-American student named Justyce who becomes a victim of racial profiling. He struggles to reconcile the fact that he's a "good kid" with suddenly being in police handcuffs - www.commonsensemedia.org

This is the third iteration of Dear Martin. The prior versions were created for online environments. This current and final version has been used in the classroom with great success. The lesson plans are presented on PPTX and are ready for sharing with the classroom. 

I appreciate the response to Dear Martin Lesson Unit. If you download the unit, please leave a comment on how it was used and if it was successful. Thank you.

Objective: Students will be able to write a persuasive multi-paragraph essay that argues that Black culture is a subculture of American culture and that it does (or does) not have an impact on the American Experience.

This resource is great for your summer reading lists. Learn more about summer reading here.
