About This Lesson

This mini-unit walks students through reading and tracking key ideas through chapters 10, 12, and 14 of Born a Crime by Trevor Noah.  It includes the slides I used while teaching, a notes tracker, and a writing prompt.  It does not include a copy of the chapters -- you would need access to copies of the book or at least of chapters 10, 12, and 14 for your students to read and annotate.
