This guide, which begins with the aspiration to allow “those who are ignored, marginalized, and stripped of their humanity to finally tell their stories,” is a valuable collection of teaching strategies to help students work with the extraordinary oral testimonies included in the Voice of Witness books.
These include Underground America: Narratives of Undocumented Lives, Patriot Acts: Narratives of Post-9/11 Injustice, Inside This Place, Not of It: Narratives from Women’s Prisons, and Surviving Justice: America’s Wrongfully Convicted and Exonerated.
Teachers will find the lessons in this teacher’s guide to be a rich source of provocations to engage with human rights dramas throughout the world. [Description by Rethinking Schools.]
