Dear Martin Unit Plans and Preventions 

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

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.
