This is a complete lesson plan of study of an essay written by one of my favorite bloggers. Her voice, vocabulary, and use of soothing words and figurative language is one of my favorite studies we do in my classroom. I have outlined all that we do, write, and discuss as well as provided task cards for group work. Each paragraph of the approximately 2-page essay has been broken down for you into a three page outline. Enjoy her work as she explains, defends, and outlines the culture and people of the Appalachian mountains.
