This is a collection of three assignments related to the reading of Michael Ondaatje's memoir. Assignment 1 includes holistic research surrounding the major literary aspects of the piece. Assignment 2 is a critical analysis essay in response to an article written about the memoir, including a grading rubric developed by the International Baccalaureate Organization. Assignment 3 is an oratory project in which students create a genealogy (family tree) and is typically used as the culminating project in the unit.
Typically these unit assignments are given as summer reading projects for rising Year 2 IB Language A1 (HL) Literature students.
