Product Description
Great First Day Activity! In this activity, students work in groups and get out of their chair to read brief descriptions of 10 Influential Texts (such as the 95 Theses, The Magna Carta, The Golden Records, The Gutenberg Bible, etc). First in small groups and then as a class, students discuss which text is the most influential/important. As an exit slip, students write about what qualities make a text important. Is it the influence the text has on the world? The quality of writing? The depth of thought it compels? Must it say something profound about the human experience, or help us understand ourselves better? I am especially looking forward to using this on my first day of class to help break the ice, get students talking to each other and thinking about literature and writing.
This 11 page document comes with 1 page of instructions for use and 10 pages of descriptions about influential texts.
