The design of this two-day lesson eloquently exposes learners to the topic of social justice for people with disabilities. The plan is built off the reading of Are You Alone on Purpose? by Nancy Werlin. The activity introduces readers to a variety of disabilities, where they take on the role, and explore their assigned disability. Learners write on their perspective and feelings associated with the experience of being disabled. This exercise could be used with other literature that deals with a disability(“The Scarlet Ibis”)and could also be used to explore the theme of justice in literature.
