On this comprehensive sheet, students are asked to:
-read the text
-determine the main idea
-decide how Gandhi feels about Government
-use evidence from the text to infer the definition of unfamiliar words
-make a chart about the cause and effect technique that Gandhi uses in his speech using only evidence from the text
-connect personally to the text by deciding if the theme is relative to today's climate
-infer who the audience is based on the text
-infer the living conditions Gandhi is referencing
This is great for groups to read together.
Have students use this as a model text to write their own speeches about an injustice relative to them. Have them write their speech in the same cause and effect style as Gandhi.
