About This Lesson

PPTX presentations and worksheets for Julia Alvarez’s “A Genetics of Justice”

In this unit, students engage with Julia Alvarez’s autobiographical essay, “A Genetics of Justice,” continuing to build skills for close reading and analysis as well as developing their understanding of the concept of human rights as represented in literary nonfiction. Students encounter Alvarez’s evocation of the struggle to memorialize the horrors of the Trujillo dictatorship in the Dominican Republic in “A Genetics of Justice” alongside Mark Memmott’s more journalistic approach to the topic in “Remembering To Never Forget,” in order to consider how authors present details to develop different portrayals of Trujillo.
