Students will compare and analyze quotes about mountains, lyrics to Miley Cyrus's song "The Climb", a non-fiction article about Mt. Everest and a YouTube video about reaching the summit of Mt. Everest, to the novel, Peak, by Roland Smith.
Students will answer questions after each of these texts/sources of media in order to make connections to the novel, Peak.
This is a multi-media activity called text triangulation which unites various types of text around a similar theme. The theme of this activity has to do with overcoming mountains and the challenges that accompany that endeavor.
