PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This one 45 minute class assignment has students read a nonfiction selection from Let Us Now Praise Famous Men by James Agee. This selection is a detailed description of breakfast which reflects the lives of the people eating the meal. Students identify words they are unfamiliar with and determine meaning from context clues. Students identify adjectives in order to help them determine tone. Then students do a written piece imitating the selection.
In my training for the new PARCC assessment, I have been told that evaluating nonfiction pieces, context clues, and imitation of writing style will be skills students will need to use.
