The Free the Children Book Study was created to give English teachers of Grades 9 and 10 a creative and practical resource to accomplish reading requirements and curriculum goals while introducing students to complex global issues.
Using student centered, critical thinking and project based learning activities, this book study helps teachers guide their students through the reading of Free the Children by Craig Kielburger. Consisting of seven detailed lessons and a final class project, this book study is arranged in a simple step-by-step manner. Each lesson is equipped with an overview of the purpose, the resources required, an estimated timeline and various assessment opportunities, providing teachers with all of the tools they need to experience success.
Using English curriculum guidelines and regulations, this study will engross students in Craig’s journey to self discovery, while educating them about culture, social justice issues, children’s rights, child labour, struggles and triumphs, childhood and more. This study will raise awareness among your students, inspiring them to become active global citizens.
