Product Description
This 3-4 day unit is designed to provide students with practice in analyzing writer's choices relative to their purpose. Excerpts from "The Great Gatsby," a Hemingway short story, and Madison's Federalist #51 are all used to facilitate understanding and evaluation of writer's works. The set of activities ideally should be used after students have gained experience in argumentation and knowledge of rhetorical techniques or strategies. If you are teaching AP Literature, this would make a great starting activity for the year if students have already completed AP Language class, but as an activity for AP Language classes, I usually use it later in the year. This unit is designed primarily for 11th, 12th, and college freshman grade levels, and it can be adapted for AP and College Prep.

Group work is combined with individual practice and entrance and exit tickets are included, along with a key for the multiple-choice practice. The teacher's role is primarily supportive as a facilitator.
