Product Description
This CCSS aligned set covers Samuel Johnson’s informational text: “The Solitude of the Country”. Students read and analyze Johnson's essay from 1754, complete a couple of text-based activities and craft an argumentative comparison essay in the vein of Johnson's essay. ** This set is from my 18th Century British Essay Mini-Unit; please do not purchase both. **

More specifically, this set includes:
* Johnson's essay with analysis questions
* a vocabulary activity and a vocabulary quiz for “The Solitude of the Country” (CCSS L 4)
* an activity that traces how a writer alters and refines the meaning of a word (CCSS RIT 4)
* an argumentative essay assignment
* a peer editing handout and rubric for the writing assignment
* all teacher notes

This set would fit well in a British Literature course, an AP Language and Composition course or a general composition course.
