Product Description

My students are reading Persepolis in my 9th grade English class, and I wanted to do a brief overview of Iran-Contra. Online I found numerous articles that were waaaay too complex for what we needed and/or did not focus enough on Iran (Persepolis is about the Iranian Revolution and takes place in Iran). After combing through the internet and becoming frustrated, I just decided to write my own article. In this download you will find a short article I wrote about Iran-Contra, and an analysis paper which focuses on determining meanings through context clues, reading comprehension, author's purpose, and summarizing.

If you are using this for reasons aside from Persepolis, I suggest tweaking the response sheet and/or elaborating more on the scandal outside of its impact on the Iran-Iraq War.

I also led this with the bellwork of, "Create a definition for the word scandal, and describe an example of a scandal." Then we had a short discussion. The kids brought up several examples such as Harvey Weinstein, baseball steroids, Bill Clinton, Richard Nixon, Bill Cosby, Lance Armstrong, etc. I would recommend doing something of that nature before diving straight into this article.
