Lesson Focus Question: How did the Black Panther Party’s survival programs, specifically the Free Breakfast Program, support the organization’s larger goals for systemic change?

The survival programs served as a powerful recruiting tool and helped to meet the basic needs of community members so that they could focus on the larger goals of peace, justice, freedom, and self-determination.

"Alright:" Using allusions to interpret and compose protest songs
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating
0.0 stars

Students analyze "Alright" alongside documents about the Black Lives Matter movement to consider why it might have been adopted by some protesters as an anthem. Although the song uses many rhetorical and lyrical strategies to accomplish its effects, we will focus on the way allusions operate. In the second part of the lesson, students compose their own protest lyrics (part of a larger project) and strategically use allusions to affect listeners in specific ways (educate them, call them to action, document the writer's experience, and/or galvanize protesters). The lesson is constructed as a reader's and writer's workshop.

The goal of this preparatory textbook is to give students a chance to familiarize with some terms and some basic concepts they will find in an Anatomy and Physiology course. Organization and functioning of the human organism are generally presented starting from the simplest building blocks, and then moving into levels of increasing complexity. This textbook follows the same presentation. It starts introducing the concept of homeostasis, then covers the chemical level, and later on a basic introduction to cellular level, organ level, and organ system levels. This second edition incorporates a module on protein synthesis, and a complementary base pairing learning objective as requested by many students. This edition also adds audio for all learning objectives. Audio Icon by Kieselli form Pixabay. The textbook is organized in five UNITS, divided into sixteen MODULES covering a total of fifty-two Learning Objectives. There is a short self-assessment at the end of each learning objective.
