This assignment includes differentiated primary sources from The Analects. I have meticulously modified each primary source to accommodate for different reading levels. One set of handouts are for middle school level readers while the other set is for high school level readers. You can select which handout best suits the need of individual learners in your class. The academic vocabulary is underlined and the content vocabulary is in bold. Following each set of primary sources are FIVE family feud scenarios which require students to determine who Confucius would side with in the feud, cite evidence to support the position, as well as provide an analytical explanation.
