Product Description
From Electric English...
This is an annotation and close reading activity intended to lead discussion about the article, "Reality Show Snake-Handling Preacher Dies -- of Snakebite". The assignment, not only asks students to annotate, but also to evaluate the meaning of the article using the SOAPSTone method. A discussion about snakes and how they are viewed within our society and culture pairs very well with Crane's story "The Snake". Whether you or your students agree with the opinions set forth in the essay is immaterial, in fact, hopefully there will be a wide range of opinions about the text to facilitate discussion. I was surprised by some of the insightful comments my students made when asked to consider this material; hopefully, you will be too :)
