Reflection: Lesson Planning Ruby Bridges - Firsthand Illustrations Vs. Secondhand Illustrations - Section 4: Comparing and Contrasting Illustration vs. Photograph

 

This lesson was not one I had originally planned on while planning out this unit on Ruby Bridges.  This lesson came to me while reading "Through My Eyes" by Ruby Bridges.  I have taught this unit in the past, but hadn't thought about this lesson until this year.  This lesson added so much meaning to firsthand account vs. secondhand account.  I find that flexibility is important when planning lesson.  Go with the sudden inspirations that come, even when they are unplanned and last minute.

Ruby Bridges - Firsthand Illustrations Vs. Secondhand Illustrations

Unit 6: Ruby Bridges
Lesson 3 of 7

Objective: SWBAT compare and contrasts the first hand photographs in "Through My Eyes" by Ruby Bridges with second hand illustrations of the same events in "The Story of Ruby Bridges" by Robert Coles.

Big Idea: Now that we have compared the firsthand account of the story of Ruby Bridges with a secondhand account, we are digging deeper and analyzing the photographs in the firsthand account as well as the illustrations in the secondhand account.
