Product Description
Students explore Realism through the works of Ambrose Bierce: "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge" and "Chickamauga."

Includes:
QR Code activity to explore the Civil War and Ambrose Bierce. Includes movie clips, photography, Q & A interviews, and author timeline (CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RI.9-10.7)

Realism introduction. A short PowerPoint to cover the basics of the Realism movement with classic art to help guide understanding and immediately practice identifying aspects of Realism.(CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.9-10.7)

Two sets of 10 vocabulary words for each story. The worksheets include a sample sentence with the word and accompanying visual. Students guess the definition based on context clues then write an original sentence after receiving the actual definition. I like to make this into a game to see who can come the closest to guessing the real definition! (CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.9-10.4) PDF for word walls is included as well - just print and hang.

Both texts with a few images and guide questions with answer key. Questions cover basic understanding, inferencing, imagery, and foreshadowing (CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.9-10.1 & CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.9-10.5 & CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.9-10.3)

Basic graphic organizer to find similarities between the texts (CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.9-10.2). This will help them in writing their literary analysis essays.

Two essay prompts are included to provide the students with an option on which they will complete (CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.W.9-10.2) This bundle includes essay outlines for each prompt, a student sample with "Chickamauga" and "Occurrence" and a student sample from Guy de Maupassant's short stories to give students as a model as they are writing. The rubric is based on the Common Core writing standard.
