PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This Common Core Writing Task engages students in close reading with an excerpt from Lorraine Hansberry's play, A Raisin in the Sun, and Langston Hughes's poem, "Mother to Son." They complete handouts with before, during, and post-reading strategies, which provide scaffolding for the writing task. Afterwards they respond to a literary analysis writing task that imitates the style of the PARCC prototype and asks them to consider universal themes. Incorporating all strands of the Common Core English Language Arts (ELA) Anchor Standards, skills stressed include annotation, drama and poetry analysis, and synthesis writing.

The 22 page resource includes the following:
-explicit lesson plan with identified Common Core ELA Anchor Standards
-anticipation guide
-contextual reading guide
-think aloud with sample annotation passage
-texts of play excerpt and poem
-graphic organizers
-Venn diagram
-literary analysis essay prompt
-short literary analysis essay rubric
-key (detailed responses for all activities and a sample essay are provided, making these valuable substitute lesson plans).
