Empowering Students

Our action/ hope for the lesson is that students are accepting of each other, no matter what differences everyone has.

We will be able to help students towards social justice by introducing a book of a young girl that is Muslim and is proud of who she represents.

The story shows empathy for students who are different and that it’s okay to embrace our authentic self.

There will be times where others may point or whisper, but don’t let it get you down. Sometimes people in the world may not know they are being rude or mean and it can be an opportunity to show them who you are.

Students should be able to know what discrimination looks like and to be able to tell an adult when it does happen at school or outside of school.

Classroom Observation

There is a classroom rug centered around a smartboard for students to look at.

Students in the classroom vary in what assistance they need. For example, there are students who will need an adult/para next to them to rephrase what the teacher is explaining for a class activity.

Students range from autism, sensory issues, and communication disorder.

This information will help us for our 1 hour lesson by making sure students that need a para or an adult will be next to them during the lesson and to place students closer to the book to see the pictures in it.

Lesson Plan

 

Introduction: We will go over the goals of the lesson at the carpet

Introduce the lesson topic: Sometime people can be mean or hurtful to other because how how they look or what they believe in. People might not know that what they are doing or saying can be hurtful to others. Today, we are going to talk about discrimination and what we can do to accept everyone and make them feel loved.

 

Introduce the Vocabulary Words: Discrimination and Acceptance -We will define the vocabulary words while giving examples that students can relate to -We will then ask students “is it okay to discriminate?” and “why should we accept others?”

Read Aloud: We will then transition to reading Yo Soy Muslim -Through out the book we will be defining words that they might not understand while asking them questions -Are these people discriminating against our main character or are they accepting her? -Are the dad and daughter discriminating against or accepting each other?

Brainstorm: As a class we will brainstorm how we can be accepting of others while reminding student we want to make sure we accept everyone in the world no matter their skin color, if they are a girl or boy, or what their religion is.
