Secondary inclusion English classes can be extremely challenging. The framework for each unit of study includes, most importantly, topics that are relevant, applicable, and engaging to students. It features multiple modes of delivery, multiple uses of technology, varied options to access information/curriculum, and a wide variety of opportunities for application of knowledge or understanding for each topic. This curriculum shell can also be easily adapted to cover content of each teacher's choice. Under the categories of “Teaching for Equity and Social Justice”/ “Social and Emotional Learning” / Revitalizing Teaching, Transforming Learning, comes a year-long plan that includes topics such as mental health (The Glass Castle) Addiction (Beautiful Boy) Social Justice Reform (Just Mercy) and Life (The Last Lecture). There is a purposeful order of topics as they continue progressively. Each unit also uses multiple modes of delivery and instruction, utilizing podcasts, research, Netflix documentaries, and films.
By the end of this course, participants will be able to create a curriculum for their secondary English inclusion classes that not only engages each student, but leaves them with relevant information and critical thinking skills.
