Details are essential for a good literary experience, creating a strong argument for making oneself understood. This lesson facilitates students’ individual development of ideas, and at the same time gives other students the opportunity to expose the values of the different writers. They all start from the same statement, but how they illustrate it exposes the subjective assumptions of supposedly objective statements.
* Students will use specific details to discover a sense of the writer’s values.
* Students will deconstruct the values of their peers, using examples from the writer’s text.
* Students will use a thesaurus to expand their vocabulary within the exercise.
