Note: This lesson was tailored around 8th grade ELA standards; however, since standards build off each prior year it can be used in a Middle School or High School setting. It contains sufficient differentiation and is clear enough to be used in a Middle School setting, but also sophisticated enough to be used in a High School setting. If you are not using the Code X Curriculum, but are teaching the short story, “Zebra,” you can still use this lesson.
