I had reservations about beginning the year with this lesson, because it deals with some heavy issues. My class, however, responded to this lesson with grace and aplomb. You should always tread lightly when dealing with social issues–and with the work of Kara Walker–but if you are comfortable with your students and discussions about these issues, this is a great lesson.
If you have mature students who can appropriately and thoughtfully deal with the issues facing them, their families, their communities, and their world, this lesson can lead to thoughtful, exciting projects and perhaps act as a springboard to more meaningful work coming from your students. I would encourage you to dive in.
