Grade 8 ELA Module 2A, Unit 1, Lesson 5

Students taking notes in class.

In this lesson, students work with their Buffalo Discussion Appointment partner.
• In advance: Prepare chart paper for the Chalk Talk. On each paper, write one of the following questions and post around the classroom:
* What is Shirley Chisholm thinking and saying about discrimination against women?
* Who is the intended audience of the speech?
* What is Shirley Chisholm’s personal role in discrimination against women?
• If you have a big class, consider posting two of each question around the classroom so students can easily see the paper.
