Mini Lesson: Managing your project steps
   1) Backward Planning: Think about the end product i.e. what you want your project to look like and the message
      it must convey about the selected work.
   2) Use your SELECTED RUBRIC—are your proficient in ALL qualities on the rubric?
   3) Search the Web for similar projects. Make connections to other content areas such as Social Studies.
   4) How much time do you need to complete the project (use a planner)

Work Period:
Student Centered Work Period Information: To make this project student centered, but more importantly, fun.
We’ve decided to allow students to create their own project using Technology to enhance learning. There is no value
in just having access to it but more important how it is used in the classroom. Technology in the classroom can help
students become capable users, information seekers, problem solvers and decision-makers.

Some of you were not certain about how to approach this project. Here are some driving/guided questions that may
help you narrow your scope:
Can culture/cultural identity be captured in words and images?
You two of my favorite quotes #1 MLK Jr.’s “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stand in times of comfort
and convenience, but where he stands in times of challenge and controversy.” And Frederick Douglass “There is no
progress without struggle.” You can use Hyppolite’s “Dyaspora” or the Haitian Revolution Article using historical to
current images and write about it.
What makes an American? Patriotism, Independence, citizenship, or something else: you can use Hyppolite’s
autobiographical account
Can America ever achieve Equal Rights? Compare and Contrast any two works.

Students will compose a multimedia project—Blogs, Word, PowerPoint, etc—of their own choice based on the
short story Dyaspora by Joanne Hyppolite that demonstrates their understanding of “cultural identity”.
    2) Students will present their finished multimedia project to the class on Friday.

  Students will use Classroom laptops to start their multimedia projects

     Student’s Self Assessment/Evaluation
     Note: Calculate the score by multiplying the level number by the number in parentheses under
     the category name. For example, if the performance matches Level 3 for Graphics, the score is 3
     x 2 or 6. Put 6 in the Score column in the Graphics row, then, add it to the other points for a

Student Centered Work Period Information: To make the upcoming project fun. We’ve decided to allow students
to create their own project using Technology to enhance learning. There is no value in just having access to it but more
important how it is used in the classroom. Technology in the classroom can help students become capable users,
information seekers, problem solvers and decision-makers.

Claude McKay: If We Must Die (1919)

In 1919 there was a wave of race riots consisting mainly of white assaults on black neighborhoods in a dozen
American cities. Jamaican-born writer Claude McKay responded by writing this sonnet, urging his comrades to fight
back. It had a powerful impact, then and later.

For what reason does McKay say even a doomed resistance is worth while?

If we must die, let it not be like hogs
Hunted and penned in an inglorious spot,
While round us bark the mad and hungry dogs,
Making their mock at our accursed lot.
If we must die, O let us nobly die,
So that our precious blood may not be shed
In vain; then even the monsters we defy
Shall be constrained to honor us though dead!
O kinsmen we must meet the common foe!
Though far outnumbered let us show us brave,
And for their thousand blows deal one deathblow!
What though before us lies the open grave?
Like men we'll face the murderous, cowardly pack,
Pressed to the wall, dying, but fighting back!
