“Stolen from her village, sold to the highest bidder, fifteen-year-old Amari has only one thing left of her own - hope.”
☀️ Wow. Talk about the power of literature. If Sharon Draper’s Copper Sun was required reading for every human, the world would be a better place. The writing, the research, the sheer emotional heft this work wields is stunning, and so impactful. If Homegoing was of any interest to you, PLEASE pick up Copper Sun by Sharon Draper! (I love it so so much more than Homegoing 😻).
Reading #CopperSun for eighth grade literacy today. Theme for today’s discussion: “In darkness, there is always light. Look for the positive in bad situations.” When someone takes away your voice and makes you feel subsidiary, where do you find your will to fight? How is this a timeless theme? #confessionsofaphillysubstitute
We started our novel study of Copper Sun by @sharonmdraper this week, and I loved being able to incorporate this reading strategy by @jenniferserravallo . It’s generated some amazing discussion in just the first few chapters. #coppersun#thereadingstrategiesbook
