If you have the short story “A Mason Dixon Memory” in your anthology, this lesson is for you!
✓ This is the worksheet, PowerPoint, and lesson plan that I have found to be very successful with "A Mason Dixon Memory," a touching story on racism- a perfect short story for discussion. I use this lesson around Black History Month to begin discussions on events that are not well known. Flashback is discussed.
✓ I have included an EATS lesson plan with an Essential Question, preview vocabulary, activating strategy, teaching strategies and a summarizing strategy (Exit Ticket).
✓ The lesson plan and worksheets are a valuable time-saver. Just print and go! Answer key is included.
✓ The PowerPoint will help with pacing the lesson (especially if you are getting observed!) and will help students focus on the most important components of the lesson.
I has also answered the essential question (using a "Hunger Games" example) so that students will be able to discuss how to critique an effective response. Teachers can display this sample answer when students are completing the exit ticket!
