Students read “Everyday Use” by Alice Walker and determine the theme of the text by responding to guiding questions and discussion. This text helps students to think about the unit theme of legacy: The importance of leaving a legacy and the myriad of ways that we can leave a legacy, through our language, our families, or even our cells.
