Purple Hibiscus Lesson Plan

Notes to the Teacher

The thought questions in this lesson plan provide ideas for student essays. Teachers may encourage students to write essays on topics of their choosing, with prior approval.

The questions provided for the final paper are suitable for student essays, as well as for responses in other media, such as videos, websites, blog posts, artistic responses, etc. Remember that grading an essay should not depend on a simple checklist of required content, but on the thoughtfulness and creativity of the students' product and process. Teachers may let students self-assess their work as needed.
