Humanities 7 – A Long Walk To Water


Unit 4.2 - A Long Walk To Water

In this short story, students will understand the issues and challenges facing Sudan (particularly Southern Sudan) in the 1980s and the present-day by reading about the incredible, true story of Salva, a "Lost Boy" of Sudan, who after his resettlement in the United States, returned to his native South Sudan to bring water drilling to communities with limited water access. Each day, students will read sections of the book in-class, both independently and as a whole class, and lead discussions on various topics/themes of the short story.
