Product Description
In this lesson, students engage in close reading of an excerpt from Lorraine Hansberry's play A Raisin in the Sun and Langston Hughes's poem "Mother to Son." Then, they respond to a PARCC-inspired writing task requiring them to synthesize their understanding of the readings.

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 the play excerpt and poem
-graphic organizers
-Venn diagram
-literary analysis essay prompt
-short literary analysis essay rubric
-key (with detailed responses for all activities and a sample essay)

Incorporating all strands of the Common Core English Language Arts (ELA) Anchor Standards, this "paired passages" lesson encourages students to practice skills in annotation, drama and poetry analysis, and synthesis writing. They complete handouts with before-, during-, and post-reading strategies, which provide scaffolding for diverse learners. Afterwards, they respond to a literary analysis writing task that imitates the style of the PARCC prototype and asks them to consider universal themes.

With its detailed instructions and samples, this resource would make an excellent lesson for a substitute if you will be out for a couple of days.
