LOTS OF MATERIALS INCLUDED WITH THIS MINI-UNIT! This makes a great preview mini-unit for ROMEO AND JULIET, or could be used in a variety of other inter-disciplinary units. Students will learn about the Anglo-Irish War and read "The Sniper" along with nonfiction accounts from real life snipers in that war. Students also read about the Hatfields and McCoys and can see the similarities between aspects of that story and ROMEO AND JULIET. I also often add "The Interlopers" to this mini-unit as well as nonfiction accounts of brother vs. brother from the American Civil War. The lessons are primarily multiple choice questions in the style of the EOC exam or other standardized tests.
