This packet has it all! I have here Russell Baker's delightful narrative "No Gumption," a close reading handout with guided questions, and, most importantly, a great activity! Students will work in small groups to create a Tableau! A tableau is a living, breathing still life. Groups will be assigned to a scene, study it, and recreate it in a tableau. Step-by-step directions guide students through the entire process. My students love this activity! It is engaging, interactive, and perfect for your kinesthetic learners!
