Product Description
All of my lessons incorporate the four C’s of teaching: Collaboration, Communication, Creativity and Critical Thinking. These four elements are at the core of the Common Core Standards. You will find all of these elements in this lesson, from having the students work with a partner or in groups, to students sharing aloud, to thinking critically about the meaning of giving to another human, to creating an advertisement for the “most important” gift.

This lesson takes one day (class period) on average to complete. It can be taught as part of a larger unit on Transcendentalism or as a stand-alone unit. It assumes that students have access to the text of “Gifts.” If this essay is not in the student text, it is easily accessed online (websites are provided).
