Lesson Plan on Comparing & Contrasting Firsthand & Secondhand TextsGrades 4–5
Using multiple texts on Ruby Bridges’ experiences as the first African American to attend a former all-white school, this mini-unit, four-day lesson plan following a gradual release of instruction model, helps students:
- Compare and contrast a firsthand and secondhand account of the same event or topic
- Integrate information from two texts on the same topic in order to write or speak about the subject knowledgeably
- Learn how to use a variety of mediums (books, articles, art, and drama) to better understand a topic
