Product Description
Beyond Compare and Contrast: Analyzing Arguments

Should English be our "official" language? Through this lesson, teachers can facilitate meaningful writing and analysis that goes beyond an examination of similarities and differences. Students closely analyze Amy Tan's "Mother Tongue" and Charles Krauthammer's "In Plain English" to compare arguments and make insights about Standard American English and language-based discrimination.
