Product Description
From Electric English...
This is an activity designed for the close reading of Tan's "Fish Cheeks". Specifically, the students are asked to consider the syntax and style of the piece. This is a great story to work with because it is very short and not too overwhelming for them. This activity is a great reference for the students as they continue to hone their close reading skills. With activities such as these, students begin to understand the layers of reading strategies. They are aware of the importance of word choice, and now with this activity; they are exposed to the idea that sentence structure, punctuation, and grammar can play a huge part in understanding an author's intent and purpose... That being able to recongnize a writer's style will contribute to their own knowledge and learning.
