CCSS 7th Grade ELA: Cesar Chavez

Is it odd that Google chose to celebrate the birthday of radical community organizer socialist, Cesar Chavez, on Easter Sunday rather than the resurrection of the Savior, Jesus Christ?

Sadly, not really.

So, we felt it was a good time to point out the 7th grade Common Core ELA lesson plan involving Cesar Chavez.   First, the teacher makes a claim and then the student has to read the passage and find supporting evidence for that claim.  Then, they write their completely unbiased and unpolitical summary of the supporting evidence for the claim made by the teacher.
