Abstract:

This 3-unit module begins with a brief study of the importance of sports in American culture over time. The heart of this module is a whole class study of the short but challenging biography €ź€Ä偀ăPromises to Keep: How Jackie Robinson Changed America,€ź€Ä€źĺ by his daughter, Sharon Robinson. (Students will read selected segments; some of these will be read aloud.) Students analyze Jackie Robinson as a specific example of an athlete who served as a leader who broke barriers in society. They also begin to study argumentative writing, analyzing how the author Sharon Robinson provides evidence to support opinions.
