The Hate U Give (hannah)

Note: This class is open to middle school students only.

In this class, we will read, analyze, discuss, and write about the book, The Hate U Give. Here’s a brief synopsis of the book:

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.

This acclaimed story handles themes of identity, racism, community, family, the power of language, injustice, and social action. Everyone I know who reads this book loves it and is moved by it. This is a class for middle school students excited to dig into a book, learn about big concepts, and study how they connect.
