Lesson seeds are ideas that can be used to build a lesson aligned to the CCSS. Lesson seeds are not meant to be all-inclusive, nor are they substitutes for instruction. When developing lessons from these seeds,
teachers must consider the needs of all learners. It is also important to build checkpoints into the lessons where appropriate formative assessment will inform a teachers instructional pacing and delivery.
This lesson should be taught over multiple days for the students. The lesson focuses on Chapter XIII: Two Thousand Miles For A Five-Minute Speech in Up From Slavery by Booker T. Washington. The students will do a close read of The Atlanta Exposition Address by Booker T. Washington. Through the two texts, students will read about the events that led Booker T. Washington to deliver a speech at the Atlanta Exposition. Two chapters have been assigned for this lesson but the teacher can have students read the rest of the autobiography.
*IMPORTANT NOTE: Consider the need for Accessible Instructional Materials (AIM) and/or for captioned/described video when selecting texts, novels, video and/or other media for this unit. See "Sources for Accessible Media" for suggestions. See Maryland Learning Links: http://marylandlearninglinks.org.
*IMPORTANT NOTE: No text model or website referenced in this unit has undergone a review. Before using any of these materials, local school systems should conduct a formal approval review of these materials to determine their appropriateness. Teacher should always adhere to any Acceptable Use Policy enforced by their local school system.
Through the previous lesson seeds and lesson plans, the teacher should be able to assess if students have an understanding of Booker T. Washington's life. If students do not have a clear understanding of the material that was read, the teacher can use the timeline for assistance. http://www.softschools.com/timelines/booker_t_washington_timeline/110/
