Product Description
This article of the week comes from Slate Magazine and addresses the issue of people misusing apostrophes when writing their holiday cards.

The article questions focus on:
allusion, tone, alliteration, author's purpose, hyperbole

Additional questions could be created to discuss personification, descriptive writing, and use of voice.

Instead of the typical short response, students have to create a sample Christmas card with a last name pluralized correctly.

Please note that this writing is filled with voice and includes the phrase "flipping me off." It may not be suitable for younger students. I do use it with my 8th grade class.

Based on Kelly Gallagher's Article of the Week concept, my reading articles are typically non-fiction and modeled on Vale Middle School's format. The articles have been chosen by me and all questions have been developed by me. If you would like to see what Vale Middle School does, check out http://vms.vale.k12.or.us/articles-week
