Students use designated literature to connect the story with their life experiences and discuss the consequences of making assumptions about others based on external differences. Students explore vocabulary associated with inclusion/exclusion and analyze meanings based on the words’ prefixes. It also provides a persuasive writing component and an opportunity for students to develop fluency, confidence, and expressiveness in reading. This lesson can also extend to health units on self-concept and respect for others and social studies units on diversity, inclusion, and community.
