๐Ÿ˜Š Talk It Out Tuesday Week 10 ๐ŸŒˆ Talent, TALENTO for Nov 10, 2020

Talk-it-out Tuesday focuses on easy question about hard stuff with my favorite reading from Violet Hott, "HAIR LOVE" for PositiveValuesNetwork's Race & Diversity Series. (Book 6 of 13). The Morgan County Partnership's Positive Action SEL and Wellness Program presents "Hair Love" by Academy winning creator Matthew A. Cherry, illustrated by Vashti Harrison. "Hair Love is a heartwarming tale about a girl, her dad, and some awesome hair that is uniquely hers." "Parents need to know that Hair Love, by former NFL wide receiver Matthew A. Cherry and illustrated by Vashti Harrison, is a lovingly depicted tale of a young African American girl's celebration of her hair and the special relationship she has with her father. Zuri is young and spirited, precocious and creative, and with the help of her dad is able to wrangle her kinky, coily hair into a style worthy of an extra special day. There are positive messages about patience and hard work, and Zuri has a keen awareness of her father's workload and all he does for her, especially when her mother is out of town. Harrison's rich, stylish, vivid illustrations amplify the story, which is based on Cherry's short animated film of the same name." Coming up next: SHE PERSISTED by Chelsea Clinton FOR FAMILIES/CLASSROOM TEACHERS, HERE ARE STUDENT ACTIVITIES/DISCUSSION PROMPTS: Teachers’ Tools for Navigation: Discussion Questions: Context and Connections: • Traditions are important in families, and in this film, one of the traditions is that the mother does the hair of her daughter. In your home who is in charge of helping kids with their daily routines? Why do you think that the job is done by that person? What are some struggles or challenges that you remember while getting ready in the morning? • Beauty equals acceptance in our culture much of the time, but is that why you think it is so important for Zuri to be able to walk out the door feeling beautiful in the morning? Characters, Setting and Story: • Take note of the beginning of the film. What is the setting? What things do you observe in the setting that are important to Zuri? • Is the date an important one for her? How do you know from her behavior? • Who is Zuri’s “fashion consultant” on her hairstyle? • Have you ever watched a video to help you learn something? If so, what was it? Was it as easy as the video showed? Why or why not? • How does Zuri’s Dad feel about trying to get her hair to look like she wants? How do you know this is how he feels, even though there is no dialogue? • In the “battle” scene, why do you think Zuri’s hair becomes a character? If you were going to name the character and give it some dialogue, what would its name be, and what would it say to Dad? What would Dad say back to it? • When you find out about Mom, what present does Zuri have that is important? Describe what she brings with her, and why it might be such an important gift.
