PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In conjunction with reading “Casey at the Bat” by Ernest Lawrence Thayer, students will write a short story from the point of view of Casey. Students will have to decide what details from the text their narrator will know. They will also work to model the style and mood of the original text.

Students will write a short story from an alternate view point. They will use first person point of view for Casey, himself. They must include accurate details from the text and will need to include Casey’s perceptions and feelings towards the game, and the outcome. They will need to include some information beyond Casey’s loss as well.

There are two choices: one is narrative writing and the other is to write a new poem using Casey’s point of view. Offer both as a choice or assign the one that best fits your classroom needs.
