Unchained Memories: Readings from the Slave Narratives
Unchained Memories: Readings from the Slave Narratives

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Documentary, December 2, 2008
I purchased this documentary to supplement a 5th grade unit on slavery. I can't imagine a better way for students to learn about the experiences African Americans faced under the institution of slavery than these first hand accounts. This documentary has been wonderfully done. The 'actors' are such a small part of the overall production. Not once did it detract from the themes of the film.

There were a couple bits that I choose to skip due to content and age of the audience. And while the picture painted was harsh, it was reality for those living in slavery. Clearly anyone viewing this with children of any age needs to be ready to have a heavy discussion prior to and after viewing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource, March 9, 2008
This book is an excellent resource for anyone teaching reading. The worksheets can be utilized with any book though suggestions are given. The worksheets hit almost every important reading topic a 5th grader needs to know. Getting a different assignment than their neighbor has not been an issue for any of my students. This book allows each student in my class to get practice with the same topic but on their own academic level. I plan on ordering this book for writing as well!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book, March 9, 2008
This is the first book I have purchased for a class that I felt was of benefit to me (and I've taken a lot of classes). It has great ideas and half of the book is filled with sample tools that you can use in your own classroom. This book is great for someone who is just starting out with differentiated instruction and even has ideas a senior teacher hasn't thought of yet!
