PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This social studies product provides your students with the opportunity to use their literacy knowledge on a primary source in order to prepare for Common Core assessments, like TN Ready. Students will read excerpts from Sam Watkins’ Company Aytch in order to gain knowledge of the experiences of war through a primary source. This skill is addressed in Tennessee social studies standard 5.14. In addition, students will take special note of sensory details that aide in the author’s description. After completing the two-page reading worksheet, students will use the knowledge they gain from the primary source to write a narrative from the point of view of a Civil War soldier. The writing focus will address literacy standard W.5.3.D, using sensory details to convey experiences and events precisely.
