Students will examine characters/conflict, dialogue/diction, author's reflection, setting, and sensory details in excerpts from unique and interesting excerpts.
Excerpts included are:
-Girl, Interrupted (sensitive material - mention of suicide, but students are typically very responsive and respectful of the topic)
-The Glass Castle
-A Long Way Gone
-The Other Wes Moore
Included is a formative with very easy to use rubric.
I've also included over 15 slides with day to day instruction and slides to show students.
