Thanks and more thoughts….

Thanks for all of these great ideas Aaron and fascinating about the book Jackie!  Music is so important I think as well to bring into the classroom–I also try to as often as possible.  I was somewhat surprised (or maybe not) to find that most of my students had not seen/heard many speeches by Malcolm X–or only bits and pieces in other documentaries– so we ended up spending time responding to some videos of some of his most well known speeches to accompany reading about his literacy experiences….This became very compelling and we can return to this in our rhetoric discussions later on…..
