In this lesson, students read and analyze paragraphs 16–19 of “A Genetics of Justice,” in which Alvarez describes Trujillo’s downfall and the ongoing effects on her parents’ psyche of living under his rule. Students engage in evidence-based discussion exploring how Alvarez introduces ideas of trauma and silence, before demonstrating their learning through a Quick Write that addresses how Alvarez develops and refines ideas from paragraphs 16–19 in paragraph 19.
