“Planting Seeds Across Curricula” by Davis (Hampton, VA) Middle School Teacher Rachelle Chambers and Librarian Nancy Terrell was published in the October 2018 issue of Teacher Librarian.  It details their collaboration on a 7th grade U.S. history unit which began with students reading “Samuel Wilbert Tucker: The Story of a Civil Rights Trailblazer and the 1939 Alexandria Library Sit-in.” Students then researched violent and nonviolent sit-ins, finally creating a Lego wall with words describing how they would deal with adversity and conflict resolution. At the end of the unit, I visited students to share my journey writing Tucker’s biography. Follow the link to the complete article. Chambers:Terrell Planting Seeds
