Description

There’s no denying that Jonathan Swift’s writing is hard for the modern teenage reader. When texts, tweets, and status updates are the only lines feeding our students, introducing a satirically ironic treatise on caring for the poor feels hopeless. These brief lessons were born after two days of intense class discussions and (what I thought was) close reading of the text. An incredulous student slammed her hand down on her desk, looked around, and exclaimed, “He’s talking about EATING BABIES?!”

Perhaps a little more frontloading was needed. This product contains four lessons and a reading quiz that might keep you from having one of your students make the same exclamation.

Lesson 1: The Basics of Paraphrasing

Lesson 2: Paraphrasing an Excerpt of “A Modest Proposal”

Lesson 3: The Basics of Summarizing

Lesson 4: Summarizing Sections of “A Modest Proposal”

BONUS MATERIAL: Reading Quiz

A GREAT BUY: This product is included in my AP English Language & Composition Product BUNDLE (Save $20 by buying all my AP Lang. products together in a ZIP file!)
