Your students will enjoy this lesson in satire. I have included everything from background information, to the text, to current event connections, to writing assignments, to discussion prompts, to a fun mini-project, and much more. I love the resource that Open Classroom offers as well (https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/A-Modest-Proposal-A-Study-of-Satire-852598). I recommend you purchase it too for the wonderful worksheets, handouts, writing assignments, web connections, and quizzes, but you do not have to in order to use my product.
