Hello Fellow Teachers- I am planning a unit on sibling diversity. Here is my overview of my unit. Students will question how siblings who have lived together, grown up together, and shared the same experiences develop different interests, hobbies, and personalities. During the next four weeks, students will learn how to research and formulate a thesis as to why they believe diversity between siblings exist. Students will explore different possibilities such as genetics, environmental influences, peer influences, parental treatment, etc. by reading literature and scholarly articles on these topics, watching movies and television show clips that illustrate the diversity between siblings, and observing and analyzing the diversity between their siblings or their friend’s siblings. Students will end the unit by celebrating the diversity between siblings and creating a multi-genre project that incorporates their research and experiences. The purpose of this unit is to have students understand and appreciate the diversity of people everywhere by relating it to something close to themselves-- their family. My question is: Can you help me think of any literature, poems, movies, tv shows that represent the diversity between siblings that is on the 9th or 10th grade level? I might consider doing literature circles if I have enough ideas. Thanks! In other words, I am just looking for books that illustrate the difference between siblings for example (but not limited to) one siblings being popular while the other one is a loser or one is athletic and one is not. ANY help would be great. Thanks again!
