Product Description
This extensive unit centers around the novel, The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien, and related readings/viewings with a survival theme. Students are immersed in a study of author's style and craft as they read the novel, learn about empathy, characterization, diction, syntax, literary devices, verisimilitude, Vietnam War, author's life and times, PTSD, Vietnam Vets of America, and other related concepts. Two summative assessments are offered: an in-class essay and a writing immersion project in which students write a personal narrative that blends fiction and reality as O'Brien did in TTTC. Scoring rubric and student self-assessment and reflection included.
