Portrait of the Whole Person: Lesson 2 – What is Disability?

Summary:

Students will understand that people have different physical and mental conditions that affect a person’s ability to move, feel, see, hear, and think.

Students will be introduced to the idea that these conditions alone are not the disability. Instead it is how society treats the condition that makes it a disability.  Students will understand that society needs to change to make the condition less of a disability, not the person.

Out of my Mind Discussion Guide for Middle School Students

[Image description]  Book cover with a fish bowl  and a gold fish jumping out of the bowl. Blue background with white text Out of my Mind Sharon M. Draper Coretta Scott King Award winning author. 

Summary:

Out of My Mind is narrated by a girl with cerebral palsy who’s very intelligent but unable to express herself verbally or physically. When Melody is integrated into some general classes at school, many kids are purposely mean; others, including teachers, are cruel through their assumptions that Melody is incapable of understanding them. With the help of her parents and some supportive friends and teachers, Melody acquires a machine that allows her to communicate better than she ever has before (Common Sense Media). At last Melody has a voice… but not everyone around her is ready to hear it (Draper, 2010). This book discussion guide can also be adapted into a full assignment if that is more applicable for your student group.
