We have dug deep the last few days into the texts on Ruby Bridges The books we have focused on are "The Story of Ruby Bridges" by Robert Coles and "Through My Eyes" by Ruby Bridges. Now the kids get the opportunity to show what they have discovered. In this assessment which is included in the resources, I have tried to address the CCSS we have been working on within this unit. I give the students as much time as needed (as long as they are working during that time and not wasting the time) to complete the assessment.
