Hey guys! I hope you are all very excited about this school year because I have some incredible things in store for us. We are going to start the year with a unit surrounding the novel Warriors Don't Cry by Melba Pattillo Beals. This novel is based off of the true story of the Little Rock Nine, who were high school students sent to integrate Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas. In this unit, we will be focusing on the issue of racism and discrimination and we will discuss whether or not we feel that integration was a failure or a success. I hope you are ready because you're in for an exciting ride!
