This lesson includes a non fiction paired text that connects Margot's depression to Seasonal Affective Disorder. The lesson includes the article, 2 short answer questions, a graphic organizer, and a constructed-response question that requires students to use evidence from both the article and the short story. Students need to support their answers with evidence from the text and then a graphic organizer comparing the causes and symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder to what happens to Margot as a result of living on Venus. A sample answer key is provided for the graphic organizer as well as the constructed-response paragraph requiring evidence from both texts. After students complete the graphic organizer, they use the information for their constructed-response paragraph. The constructed-response includes a claim, multiple pieces of evidence and commentary.
