Product Description
A great way to teach language and literature! Capture students' imagination with a jaw-dropping world record and then build on that interest to teach core ideas. For example, the record-setter for the Language with the Most Words (it’s actually English) leads students into a deeper understanding of affixes and appreciation of the work of lexicographers. The World’s Oldest Propaganda (hint: it’s political) has students identifying types of propaganda and becoming aware of their community. Students read cuneiform, write poetry, outline a screenplay, and even stage a race in a library. A wonderful variety of activities that both deepen and broaden students’ knowledge of language and literature.

Grades 5-9. Meets the National Council of Teachers of English/International Reading Association Standards. 60 Reproducible Activity Sheets. Teaching Tips. Complete Answer Key.
