This is a two or three day mini-unit on Sandra Cisneros' "A Rice Sandwich" (an excerpt from The House on Mango Street.
I've included a few graphic organizers that will challenge students in critical thinking, analysis, and using textual support in their work.
You will get:
✔ Character Traits: Evidence and Support Graphic Organizer (with key)
and Writing Application
✔ Personality Traits Graphic Organizer--Students will find and record personality traits of the main character, as well as minor characters and analyze what those traits show the reader (no key)
✔ Critical Thinking Questions and Plot Chart
For a short piece of literature, this can be quite challenging, as students must infer a lot, and also consider mood and tone in order to understand the characters' motivations.
