PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Marge Piercy's poem "To Be of Use" creates a three-fold opportunity for teachers of middle school students: 1) the teacher helps students define expectations; 2) the teacher reviews active reading; and 3) the teacher can see this year's students' writing skills at work, either informally (journal) or formally (possibility of turning the journal's draft into an essay). This is a one-day thorough plan for setting the classroom's tone, but it can be extended using the Six Traits checklist to revise, edit, and grade a final expository essay.
