PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Looking for an engaging and challenging way to use picture books with middle school students? The short book, Angel City by Tony Johnston is your answer! This book has a theme that students can relate to and is FULL of literary elements for students to discover and analyze. It touches on cultural differences, survival of gang violence, and love in a unique way.

I use this assignment with my students to help introduce and review literary elements including:
Atmosphere
Colloquialism
Foreshadow
Imagery
Inference
Metaphor
Paradox
Parallelism
Simile
Symbol
Theme
Tone

Students use the book to interpret and explain the literary elements through short answer and multiple choice questions that are similar to common core questioning formats. I hope you love it!

I also use this assignment in conjunction with a unique expository writing assignment that uses the life or Richard Sherman from the Seattle Seahawks and another article related to gang violence. It is powerful and leads to wonderful writing!

This short picture book is not included in the offer.

If you use it and love it, please let me know!
