WHAT IS "NACIREMA"?

An article about "America" from an outside perspective. It sheds light on how we should not judge or criticize other societies or people without first understanding their perspective. The heavily coded text is challenging and fun for secondary students (Grades 6-12) who will feel like they are solving a mystery as they make meaning of the text!

- Handout (PDF & editable DOC)

- Mini Lesson "How to Paraphrase" Guide (on handout and powerpoint)
- Full article and reading response activity (on handout and powerpoint)


SKILLS:

- Make inferences to interpret language
- Paraphrase quotes
- Summarize main idea
- Identify subject, argument, author's purpose & relevant evidence


Your students (between Grades 6 - 12) will LOVE this exercise, as mine did. They will also learn a lot about cultural influences and reinforce anchor common-core standards for writing and reading literature informational text without even realizing it!

A great fun activity to get students invested in reading and writing around the holidays or at the beginning or end of the year!
