This activity should be used after students have read "A Modest Proposal" by Jonathan Swift. The activity has the students identify a social issue on their campus or in the nation they feels needs to be solved. Students will develop a satirical solution and evidence for their solution to the problem just as Swift does. Students will use the text as a reference/guide to assist them with the assignment. Students will also come up with a realistic solution to the issue and evidence to support. Lastly, they can, if the teacher wishes, create a poster that depicts their Modest Proposal and present it to the class.
