Engaging Urban Learners in Reading "The Scarlet Letter"
Whitaker, Sandra
English Journal, v96 n6 p16-18 Jul 2007
Using the overarching concept of the role of an outcast in society, high school teacher Sandra Whitaker persuades urban students to explore the relevance among their lives, the district-required reading, and research on historical and contemporary outcasts. From the unit, students gain an appreciation for Hawthorne and, importantly, ascertain the relationship between their actions and responsibilities as contributors within a society.
