Ribed I feel this text would be of interest to children because I m pretty certain they have all heard of Rosa Parks and I think they would be proud and interested to now that someone in their age demographic was actually the first to take a stand It might even inspire them to follow in Claudette s footsteps Wow I now see and agree with all the accolades heaped on this book I d had it sitting around for weeks before I reluctantly began reading it once I did I was engrossed Hoose s research is remarkable but it is the way he seamlessly interweaves Claudette s own memories with his third person account sprinkled with other uotes that is just wonderful I absolutely loved loved loved this book Wow What a story And to think that if she hadn t been a teenager at the time she might have become as famous as Rosa Parks I m so glad that Phillip Hoose has written this book about Claudette Colvin a brave young girl forgotten by history Hoose did an excellent job of taking a complex political legal and social situation in 1950 s Montgomery Alabama and making it intelligible to young readers The Montgomery bus boycott was much than a protest about segregation on city buses It struck at the heart of segregation as a whole in the deep South What an eye opener it was for me to read about how some of these people were treated and by policemen who were supposed to be upholding the law I just don t understand prejudice that deep and I never will Thank God they prevailed and ultimately triumphed This book won several well deserved book awards including the Newbery Award Honor Book and the Robert F Sibert Medal Honor Book for best informational book I highly recommend this to anyone who wants a deeper understanding of the Montgomery bus boycott or to anyone who wants to read an inspirational story about a brave young teen I listened to an audio version on the computer while I read along in the bookThe photographs are an important part of this bookClaudette Colvin Twice Toward Justice by Phillip Hoose is an amazing story of courage conviction of principals and strength Claudette a young lady living in Alabama during the 1950 s was tired of the segregation laws that were set up against her This biography shares the story of how Claudette refused to obey by the segregation bus laws and give up her seat to a white lady As a result of this bravery she was imprisoned and charged with many crimes including resisting arrest Claudette really is the first to spring board the Rosa Parks arrest and bus boycotts The book depicts the events that follow in an engaging way eeping the reader interested up until the endingThis award winning book shares the life and times of amazing people I was struck by the strength and courage of Claudette Colvin to stand up for eual rights for everyone Most young people of her age were concerned with what would happen to them rather than how to create change This non fiction book should be used in grades 6 and up The many uses include as a mentor text when studying segregation a study of biographies and character education to standing up for what you believe in Appropriate for 8th graders and older This is a beautiful book about the struggles of Claudette Colvin not only in segregationist Montgomery Alabama where her refusal to give her bus seat up to a white woman sparked the bigger bus boycott movement but also in her own community where she was shunned by many of the boycott leaders as well for being unmarried and pregnant shunned for giving birth to a fair skinned baby although the father was black Despite all of this she still agreed to testify in the Browder vs Gayle case that
WENT ALL THE WAY TO THEall the way to the Court which ruled in favor of the plaintiffs Ending Segregated Seating On The segregated seating on the disappeared from the public eye for many years it was hard for her to get a job when the restaurant owners in Montgomery found out who she was and was largely forgotten except for the work of a few reporters to eep her in the public eye Eventually her story has resurfaced in history books and lessons Rosa Parks was not the first person to refuse to give up her seatPhillip Hoose the author of this National Book Award Winner alternates Claudette s narrative with a narrative about facts revealing the systematic way they boycotted the buses buying dozens of station wagons and picking up riders at various points He also includes sidebars with facts about cases related to or people involved in this experience pictures newspaper clippings and handwritten notes I found this book to be inspiring and think it needs to be widely read by young people Segregation is still an issue it s not as transparent as whites and colored signs but it exists and somehow we need to continue to hope that things will change advocate for change and act towards changeRead Erin Ramai s review for a thorough critiue of this bookSupplemental primary sources include 1 Montgomery City Bus CodehttpwwwarchivesstatealusteachCode of the City of Montgomery Alabama Charlottesville Michie City Publishing Co 1952 Alabama Department of Archives and History Montgomery Alabama2 List of Negroes Most Urgent Needs Negroes Most Urgent Needs Inez Jessie Baskin Papers Alabama Department of Archives and History Montgomery Alabama3 Bill of Rights Amendments I XIVImage of Bill of Rights can download high resolution imag.

Phillip Hoose ✓ 9 CharactersHe segregation of schools in Montgomery Alabama in the mid 1950s Colvin s point of view and personal history is interspersed with accounts from other sources and there are plenty of detailed explanations of how things worked and were organised and funded It s uite amazing what the co operation of a community accomplished and what they had to sacrifice There are many examples of unjust events that precipitated Colvin s impromptu decision to make a stand The narration is perfect Not once did I become bored or frustrated I highly recommend this anyone that wants to now about Martin Luther King Jr Rosa Parks and the civil rights movement in AlabamaETA I forgot to add that I was surprised to hear that Colvin stopped straightening her hair while she was in high school because she was proud of her African heritage Unfortunately her classmates and her boyfriend didn t understand and began to pressurize her on the subject But she was adamant Her natural hair was beautiful She didn t want to spend hours every morning trying to make her hair look like a white woman s She was African and that was that Read for free via Audiobooksynccom I normally loathe nonfiction but this is as thrilling as a novel It incorporates photos newspaper articles interviews with Claudette Colvin and passages written by Phillip Hoose in very stripped down but powerful words This is a great read for anyone aged ten or older about a fifteen year old girl who was in many ways one of the strongest ballsiest fighters for civil rights in her time Highly recommend Claudette Colvin Twice Toward Justice is appropriate for children in grades 6 and up In 2009 it won the National Book Award for Young People s Literature was named a School Library Journal Best Book of the Year and a Cybils Award Nominee for Middle GradeYoung Adult Non Fiction In 2010 it a received a Sibert Honor and Newbery Honor Award was listed as an ALA Notable Children s Book for Older Readers and an ALA Best Book for Young Adults Claudette Colvin at the age of 15 was the first person to plead not guilty to breaking the segregation law disturbing the peace and assaulting the policemen who had pulled her off the bus everyone else had simply paid the fine And although all of this happened before Rosa Parks followed suit Rosa not Claudette is most often talked about as the landmark case the catalyst for integration However Claudette s personal lawsuit as well as the Browder v Gayle case in which Claudette was a ey plaintiff both opened up the door for the Montgomery Bus Boycott But history books fail to mention it maybe because at the time in the minds of local leaders Claudette was not the right person to lead the movement The truth is that without Claudette integration on Montgomery busses may not have come so uickly after the Brown v Board of Education of Topeka case where segregation in schools was outlawed and separate but eual was ruled to have no place Claudette Colvin Twice Toward Justice proves that information texts don t have to be boring Hoose s third person narration paired with Claudette Colvin s first hand account is spectacular The text reads like a documentary film and I feel it would be easily adapted to that format The suspense the pain and anger felt by Colvin are simultaneously experienced by readers I found myself reading about thirty pages of this book at a time a feat for non fiction information text The photographs insets and newspaper clippings serve a dual purpose they give readers a real sense of the time and break up the text so that it isn t as daunting to read Without the images the text wouldn t be as effective I also appreciated the epilogue and author s note By the end of the book I really felt like I understood who Claudette Colvin was and is as well as who Phillip Hoose is as and is as well as who Phillip Hoose is as researcher and writer I plan to read of his books in the future and hope they live up to the gold standardThis book would be interesting to pair with a text that chronicles the life of Rosa Parks Approaching the book in this way would create a great teachable moment because it serves as a warning that we should not blindly accept what history books or other textbooks tell us Much of what is taught in history classes is one sided and leaves out ey details that may be unflattering to the United States As teachers we have to #Be Concerned With Teaching Our #concerned with teaching our the truth and not simply what is socially acceptable In addressing whether or not this text meets the award criteria I considered the Sibert Award As mentioned above this book has an excellent engaging and distinctive use of language Because the text was created though interviews with Claudette Colvin and edited for accuracy and wording by Claudette herself much of the language used is a riveting first hand account of the events When Hoose summarizes the connective tissue that links Claudette s account to historical context it is not belabored and maintains a stimulating presentation of facts concepts and ideas The clarity and accuracy reuired of this award is obtained through Claudette and also through Hoose s watertight research Additionally this text has distinctive visual presentation in that the images included are artifacts from the time period The table of contents index endnotes and other supportive features will help child readers navigate the text and the events desc.

Justice by Phillip Hoose Other authors See the other authors section Members Reviews Popularity Average rating Mentions Based on extensive interviews with Claudette Colvin Wow Claudette Colvin Twice Toward Justice is wonderfully researched riveting through first hand accounts from Claudette Colvin herself and very clear to the reader through third person explanations from Hoose The inserts and photographs provided great context This is an important history that should be discussed My first five star read of the year To be honest the only reason I read this book was because I wanted to now about Jim Crow Laws and there was only a handful of them at my library and this was one of themBut it was a decent book overall It told the story of Claudette Colvin who before Rosa Parks stood up to Jim Crow Laws and refused to give up her seat to a white passenger AT ONLY THE AGE OF 15 I probably would never have the courage to do that so I applaud her for thatThis book is a children s book which probably lead me to find it boring and a nonfiction book which are REALLY hard for me to get into because let s be honest dragons and faes are much interesting than our own damned world But one thing I did have problems with was the way the story was written It was told in a part interview part nonfiction book writing style and it did not follow The readers attention is often dragged from point to point and adding interview segments didn t help to improve my drowsinessBesides the story making my eyes droopy it is a really important story that needs to be shared with all children It teaches the importance of standing up for what you believe in and that NEEDS to be stressed Overall it was a compelling story that I believe all ids should read On December 5 1955 African Americans in Montgomery Alabama started boycotting city buses to protest segregation The boycott lasted 381 days prompted by the arrest of Rosa Parks for her refusal to give up her seat to a white passenger Although Rosa Parks has been the face of integrated buses there was to the story Months earlier 15 year old Claudette Colvin was dragged from a city bus for her refusal to give up her seat to a white patron Her actions sparked much buzz among African Americans in her community and civil rights activists hoped her case would lead to changes in the way African Americans were treated on city buses Despite all of their arguments Claudette was fond guilty on all charges Not long afterwards contact from civil rights leaders reduced to nothing her classmates mocked her and Claudette became pregnant But her fight for justice did not end and Claudette went on to be a major factor in the desegregation on city buses in Montgomery Alabama I enjoyed this book as a story about one of the little people who made a big difference The style of writing is effective switching from first to third person as the author fills in and expands upon parts of Claudette s narrative The images in black and white are appropriately placed to put emphasis on the story The side notes are clearly distinguished and relevant to the story This book definitely belongs in a civil rights unit of study It could be used in several ways to discuss the legal processes that lead to integration and to encourage the study of the lesser nown people who impacted the civil rights movement Rosa Parks was not the first woman to refuse to give up her seat on a bus for a white person I Renovate: Changing Who You Are by Loving Where You Are know I didn tnow this either It s not our fault Claudette Colvin had done the same nine months before She was not considered by African American civil rights leaders to be a suitable symbol for the campaign against segregationist legislation She was too young she was fifteen perceived to be too fiesty and too emotional and too working class to be an appropriate figurehead to inspire revolution among her fellow African American residents of Montgomery Alabama She suffered at the hands of the police than Ms Parks Colvin was jailed among other things scorn from her neighbours and supposed friends than Ms Parks and yet she s been conveniently forgotten by the press The Historians And The Public But She historians and the public But she t bitter about it In fact she understands why Rosa was the better choice she was everything Claudette wasn t a well respected introvert a middle class and middle #aged woman Colvin was understandably hurt when she wasn t informed about victories #woman Colvin was understandably hurt when she wasn t informed about victories included in celebrations and was completely shunned by everyone when she fell pregnant just a few months after she took a stand by a married and supposedly white man She was a teenager an unwed mother a shameful thing Her parents forced her to Gaffer keep the name of the father secret so apart from her immediate family she was without support from the community that once revered her for her bravery The movement took what they wanted from her and then ignored her when she became the object of shame The irony is astonishing the movement rallying against unjust persecution while also persecuting a vulnerable member of their communityAnyway Colvin never sought fame or criticized the movement s leaders she uietly tried to rebuild her life Her dream of becoming a civil rights lawyer shattered once she became pregnant Her schoolicked her out as it did any pregnant teenager and she was forced to bear and raise her son in isolation constantly looking for work since she was fired every time her
