About This Lesson

This guide includes:

  • Unit essential questions
  • Facing History learning objectives and outcomes
  • Guiding questions, classroom activities, and formative assessments for each section of the memoir
  • Text-based discussion questions, supplemental readings, and handouts (PDF and Google Doc)
  • Three summative assessment options
