Product Description
Too often high school English classes are stuck in the boring days of yore.

Offer your students an opportunity to study a post-modern story written in a multimodal style. Students will close read then create collaborative discussion forums while reading this story through critical literary lenses. This leads to a choice assessment of a creative multimodal piece or a literary analysis.

Jennifer Egan’s A Visit from the Goon Squad won the 2011 Pulitzer Prize among many other awards. This lesson focuses on chapter 12, a section of the book written artfully in PowerPoint.

Chapter 12 is written from the perspective of Sasha Blake’s 12-year-old daughter, Alison, thus there is no objectionable content.

The selection is a terrific example of Egan’s wit, talent and rhetorical moves as a writer and the text serves an exemplar of post-modern writing at its finest.

Key words: post-modern, AP Language, AP Literature, American Literature, short story, discussion, technology, collaboration, Common Core, close reading, analysis, critical literary theory, PowerPoint, Twitter, rock and roll, Pulitzer Prize
