 African proverb states that until the lions have their own historians, the history of the hunt will always glorify the hunter… Unit 2 challenges students to become critical readers of texts they encounter. During the unit, students will read historical fiction and non-fiction to explore historical accounts from multiple voices and perspectives. They will discover that critical readers recognize that a single text presents just one portrayal of a topic or event and one writer’s perspective of the subject matter. Students will come to understand that a non-critical reader will read historical fiction or non-fiction to “learn the facts of the situation or to discover an accepted interpretation of those events,” while a critical reader may “read the same work to appreciate how a particular perspective on the events and a particular selection of facts can lead to particular understanding.” This unit will challenge students to continually make text-to-text connections as they read selections of historical fiction, non-fiction, and poetry.
