Product Description
This is my satire lesson for Interactive Notebooks (ISNs). We use two video clips and a PowerPoint to introduce students to the concept of satire, and then move to the target text. Students finish with an analytical essay about instances of satire in the text. I use this with The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain, but this resource includes an editable essay prompt that you can use with the text of your choice. (grades 6-10)

What You Get:

1. Satire Lesson and PPT
2. Brainstorming Chart for Interactive Notebooks
3. Satire Essay Prompt for Tom Sawyer
4. Satire Essay Prompt for any novel
5. Choice of analytic or holistic rubrics
6. Set-up and advice for Interactive Notebook spreads

This resource is included in my Tom Sawyer Unit for Interactive Notebooks
