Augusta refers us back to video # 157 when she introduces this series of videos where she’s examining writing and thinking skills by using the lives of two black men and their very popular autobiographical books.
She quickly reviews the two books and tells how, after reading James McBride’s combination biography and autobiography, The Color of Water: A Black Man’s Tribute to His White Mother, she became interested in comparing the lives, from childhood on, of James McBride and Malcolm X.
Using The Autobiography of Malcom X as the reference for Malcolm X’s life, she found so many similarities that she thought the examination of the lives of the two men might make for excellent student lessons in reading comprehension and writing.
Next she shows a chart of a high school ELA standard for writing and thinking skills and explains that in a series of videos she will compare and review some of the autobiographical details of the two men and contrast their experiences related to Family and Childhood; Race and Culture; Self-Identity, and Personal Transformation.
In the first of the series, Video # 158, she starts with a focus on family and childhood and uses an excerpt from The Color of Water where McBride describes his step--father. In today’s video, #159, she uses an excerpt from The Autobiography of Malcolm X where he describes his father.
After reading that excerpt she had written on a chart, Augusta tells how the series will continue with lessons on comparing and contrasting the family and childhoods of the two men and then will continue and go on into the intersection of the other identified topics of race and culture; self-Identity; and personal transformation.
Attached is the excerpt from The Autobiography of Malcolm X that Augusta uses.
