This product includes an assignment sheet for students to write their own eulogy for Troy Maxson in the voice of a character from Fences, as well as a model eulogy in the voice of Gabriel.
I hope you and your students enjoy this project as much as my students have over the past six years! I usually conduct this project over the course of one double period or two days of a single period class as soon as we finish reading Fences in class. It allows them to review the events and characters of Fences while also practicing author’s style and voice. By presenting their eulogies, we emphasize speaking and listening skills in addition to reading and writing. Enjoy!
