Product Description
Enter the world of factory life as depicted in a short excerpt from Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle and in a modern essay about poultry processing factory workers. Through a fiction and a non-fiction text, students consider issues of immigration and food while analyzing writing techniques. Additionally, students complete the CCSS aligned tasks of analyzing thematic and central idea development. As a culminating activity, students complete a RAFT composition in response to the readings. All teacher notes included.

Note: Students will need internet access to read the non-fiction article. The article includes a few swear words to capture factory life.

This activity pack includes:

* A set of anticipatory questions for the readings
* A four page excerpt of Sinclair’s The Jungle and a link to a non-fiction article
* The Jungle excerpt analysis questions with teacher key
* “Undercover in a Chicken Factory” analysis questions with teacher key
* Theme and central idea comparison organizer with teacher key
* R.A.F.T. writing assignment with rubric

Did you know this unit is part of my American Literature Bundle? The bundle includes 10 resources for a 20% discount. **Please do not purchase this unit in addition to the bundle**

** I also offer Inside Sinclair’s The Jungle ONLY from this pack. Please don’t purchase both.**

This set would fit well in an American Literature Course, in a World Literature Course, in a Realism unit, or in a muckraker literature unit.
