This is a complete writing unit to accompany study of John Steinbeck's Cannery Row. For this writing task, students are required to compare and contrast the portrayal of outcasts in Steinbeck's novel with those in contemporary American films. This 11-page download includes a 2-page overview of the compare and contrast prompt, requirements for the assignment, possible films to investigate, and student deadlines during the writing process; a 1-page handout detailing the dialectical quotation journal, along with model examples of text citations and sample analysis; a 1-page model proposal illustrating how students might generate an original thesis drawn from Steinbeck's novels and a pair of American films-Boyz 'N the Hood and The Outsiders in this case; a 2-page handout modeling an effective outline for the essay, illustrating placement of the thesis, assertions, text evidence, comparative analysis, etc.; a 2-page handout demonstrating effective use of text evidence, clear introductions to quotations, proper MLA style, and fluid transitions between points; a 2-page peer evaluation form for in-class assessment of students' first drafts; and a 1-page teacher evaluation form for summative assessment of the final draft.
