The Hate U Give
The Hate U Give | Angie Thomas
Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, Angie Thomass searing debut about an ordinary girl in extraordinary circumstances addresses issues of racism and police violence with intelligence, heart, and unflinching honesty. Soon to be a major motion picture from Fox 2000/Temple Hill Productions. Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed. Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalils name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr. But what Starr doesor does notsay could upend her community. It could also endanger her life.

This RF novel written by Angie Thomas has won the National Book and Coretta Scott King awards. Starr sees the uneasy balance between the poor, mostly black neighbourhoods and the rich, mostly white neighbourhoods come to life. When Starr watches her friend, a black boy, get shot and killed by a cop, she has to find her voice, not be scared, and stand up for what's right. This book represents the Black Lives Matter movement. #UCFLAE3414F19

JRone This book is great for an IR and the lesson plan http://www.readwritethink.org/classroom-resources/lesson-plans/developing-critic... allows children to dig deeper in the Black Lives Matter movement and connect it to prior knowledge. 1w
JRone UDL strategy 5.1, use multiple media for communication would allow children to use different resources for their research. EL strategy #36, ask numerous questions which require higher-level thinking responses is perfect to get students thinking about how this book applies to their everyday lives and the real world. 1w
Lrobertson This book was actually turned into a movie. I think linking the 2 for older students (maybe high school because of the violence) would be a great source! 1w
TristanPool Just from the movie trailer, this book has such a powerful message for the Black Lives Matter movement. I think it would be a great choice to include in a classroom library, so kids could see through the window of individuals that differ from them. @JRone 1w

The truth of the book shouldn‘t be a surprise to anyone living in the US today, but told through the voice of a sixteen year old girl, it is almost unbearable. Beautifully woven, heartbreakingly real. A must read.

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas is a Coretta Scott King honor book and New York Times Bestseller. This book is about a girl named Start who watched her best friend get shot by a white police officer. Starr doesn't know what to do but knows she has to do something so she speaks out about what happen and trying to get justice for her best friend. This book is a RF and would be a good book for LC or IR. #UCFLAE3414F19

DrSpalding Make sure you use the rubric as your guide. We will review another post in class. 2w
AleciaM The ESOL strategy I would use for this book is #29. Offer a variety of reference material at the students' instructional level for independent use. The UDL strategy I would use would be 4.2 optimize access to tools and assistive technology.

AleciaM I choose strategies because some ESOL students may not understand the lingo that is used thought the book. For UDL some students need to actually hear the audio book as they follow along. This would be part of their assistive technology. 2w

wow, just wow 😯 ...I'm amazed at how Angie Thomas managed to squeeze in so much nuanced commentary on so many issues like race, class, police brutality, drug dealing and even smaller problems like toxic friendships. Starr is so interesting and multifaceted as a character and her parents are pretty awesome. really hope this becomes a classic amongst ya books in the years to come.

A YA novel that gives a great, thought provoking look into an ongoing issue in the US. Starr witnesses her best friend murdered at the hands of a police officer. She has to learn to speak up for herself, honor her friend and trust those around her again. The dialogue read easily and the relationships were believable. I loved the book and would recommend it.

Amazing story. A Must Read. The story somewhere deep inside stirs you and asks that really important question - Are you really living a life to please others, hiding who you really are?
The characters are built very nicely and with time they engrave into you as you read.
A very fragile topic discussed in a really very modest way. Looking forward to read more of Angie Thomas!

I can see why there was so much buzz around this book when it came out and it‘s one I‘d definitely recommend to teenagers if I was still teaching... but I found the language and writing style just too YA for me. Still a pick but not as good as I was expecting.
