Categories: Secondary Literacy , Primary Literacy

Find a list of books that feature black, indigenous and people of color in agriculturally themed books. Use these books in conjunction with our Literature Circles Guide for a complete language arts activity. Using agriculture as a contextual theme in literature circles allows students to choose publications on a variety of different subjects and encourages classroom discussion on common connections between the texts. The Agricultural Reading Recommendations offer diverse perspectives on stewardship of the land and the effects on a character’s lifestyle, values and identity. Literature circles provide students the opportunity to explore texts of their interest engaging them in effective student-centered learning. This reinforces comprehension, analysis and evaluation.
