Product Description
This close read activity uses Theodore Roosevelt's "Man in the Arena" excerpt, an excerpt from Ayn Rand's novel Atlas Shrugged, a quote from Pope Paul VI, and a quote from Henry Ford. All have to do with the value of striving toward a goal, of working, of creating your own destiny. I enjoyed this!

It is broken down by excerpt / quote with each followed by questions that refer to the previous excerpt / quote much like the PARCC test will do. It is a good introduction to the practice of close reading.

Students will annotate, define, question, predict and identify the following literary devices: alliteration, anaphora, antithesis, metaphor, parallelism, personification, and repetition. They will also answer text dependent questions.

This process should take a couple of class periods. The activity is an 1130 Lexile level according to Lexile Analyzer.

Common Core Objectives:
6-8.RH.1 Cite specific textual evidence to support analysis of primary and secondary sources.
6-8.RH.2 Determine the central ideas or information of a primary or secondary source; provide an accurate summary of the source distinct from prior knowledge or opinions.


I hope you enjoy it. Come back for more!
