SAAMteach - High School Level English classes
Lesson concept is included in resources
This collection includes a multi-day lesson plan built around Childe Hassam's Tanagra (The Builders, New York), 1918, and is designed to explore the effect that gender inequality can have on identity. Lessons are designed for an eleventh-grade, American Studies, Humanities-style course, and the historical context is the Gilded Age and the Women's Suffrage Movement. The plan for this mini-unit includes the analysis of visual, literary, and historical texts, and while it has a historical context, the goal is also to make connections to American life today. The essential question for this mini-unit is this: How can unfair gender norms affect what it feels like to be a human being? Included, you will find a lesson plan as well as digital versions of the artistic, literary, and historical texts needed to execute that plan. #SAAMteach
Photos and paintings of Algonquin Provincial Park are grouped with Tom Uttech's "Mamakadendagwad." What is the impact when someone or something enters an environment or ecosystem? Lesson could be an introduction for multiple content areas. In science, students could study mammals, birds, and insects of Ontario, Canada; ecosystems; and invasive species. In history, what is the wilderness? It could be paired with Charle C. Mann's argument about Native American and European impact on land in Jamestown. It could also be paired with Juane Quick-to-See Smith's painting "State Names" to consider how humans name places they settle. English students could extend the discussion by reading Iroquois creation myths and Joseph Bruchac's "Snapping Turtle." #SAAMteach

Tool for exploring themes surrounding community identity, race, gender, segregation, and gentrification. Suggestion to specifically pair with Lorraine Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun.
This collection will be used to supplement students' rhetorical analysis of The Declaration of Independence. Earlier in the year, students discussed the paradoxical nature of the Puritans arriving in the New World to escape religious intolerance, yet they were exceedingly intolerant of other religions (i.e., Quakers). In a similar fashion, we'll examine the Declaration of Independence and a critical portion deliberately removed: references to abolishing slavery. We will examine a variety of works of art, noting the clues they give us regarding our founding fathers' often complex ideologies. #SAAMteach
This lesson, revolving around SOB SOB by James Marshall, will analyze several different perspectives on the minority experience in the US by looking at artwork created by Muslim, Black, Indigenous, and Latino American artists.

By using Chimamanda Adichie's "The Dangers of a Single Story" as a lens, students will begin to analyze how urban artists draw awareness to single stories and challenge them through their artwork.
