Product Description
This close reading lesson pairs a work of fiction, Orwell's classic novel 1984, and a nonfiction editorial, Editorial: All this snooping is legal, and that's the problem. Students are guided through multiple readings that expand their comprehension and assist them in writing a text-dependent question that analyzes an author's argument. Note: this lesson can kick off a unit on Orwell's 1984, or used independently, or even used to jump start a unit on debate!
