Olivia Dunn Text Set I used Joyner Librarys Teaching Resources Center to find the books that I selected

for my text set. I began by using the search engine to search books related to the Civil Rights Movement and African American Freedom. The first book that I found was Life in the Time of Rosa Parks and the Civil Rights Movement. This book is a nonfiction/biography book. The book is related to my original literature circle book, Freedom On the Menu: The Greensboro Sit-ins, because the actual sit-ins that Connies brothers friends were involved in are in this story. Also, Rosa Parks was fighting for African American Rights just as the people in my literature circle story. Next, I found the book Martins Big Word, The Life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and it is also a nonfiction/biography. This book can be related to my original literature circle book, because in the story Connie and her family go to listen to one of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.s speeches. The third book that I found is a fiction book titled Sweet Clara and the Freedom Quilt. This story is related the originally literature circle book, because Sweet Clara is a young girl who dreamed of freedom just as Connie dreamed of eating her banana split. In the end Sweet Clara got her freedom and escaped her plantation just as Connie got her freedom and banana split. The fourth book that I found was Under the Quilt of the Night. This book was a fiction book and it can be related to the original literature circle book, because the boy and the group with him were risking a lot by trying to escape and get to freedom. Connies siblings and all of the other people from Freedom On the Menu: The Greensboro Sit-ins were also risking a lot to fight for their freedom. The final book that I chose for my text set was a nonfiction book called Sit-In How Four Friends Stood Up By Sitting Down. This book is a real story about four guys who did the first sit-in in Greensboro North Carolina. These guys are Connies brothers friends in the original literature circle story Freedom On the Menu: The Greensboro Sit-ins. All of the books that I chose were in some way related to African American rights and African Americans fighting for their freedom. ______________________________________________________________________________ Title: Life in the Time of Rosa Parks and The Civil Rights Movement (Nonfiction/Biography) Citation: DeGezelle, T.
