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.
A great story, nonetheless!
