Perspectives in Hidden Figures:  Circle of Viewpoints
Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached
Rating

In this lesson students will examine the characters in a chapter who happen to have differing view points. This is an important factor for success with this lesson. Students will analyze characters and actively express theiir perspectives on different topics and questions.  Students will use their background knowledge,previous learning from the book, and make inferences about the characters. During the "discussion" students use their acting skills to be a partticular character and discuss from that point of view. They will justify the stance they take as they speak in character.  This creates a great understanding of perspective and view points before moving into deeper dives about author's perspectives.

The target audience of this lesson are adult learners at basic level who may have reading difficulties or need to refresh or improve their reading fluency and who have an interest in agriculture or gardening.
The lesson can optionally be based upon principles of Systemic Functional Grammar and it is built around planning a small garden, with potential for tie-in to a hands on project. The lesson aims to help learners construct a mental model from a text; enable learners to answer 'what' and 'where' questions about key details in a text; and help learners develop reading skills and strategies which may later be useful in examinations like the GED.
