Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Looking from the Outside In and the Inside Out - Section 4: Closing the Loop


For many students, reading the Ruby Bridges bio is the best part of the lesson. Students are always surprised that Ruby is still alive and still fighting for what she believes in—good schools and equal educational opportunities for all children. They love what Ruby did as a child, and they like having Coles’ fictional account supported and extended by a nonfictional account. I think it helps them value the lesson more and even to think about ways they could be involved.
