"The Sniper” by Liam O’Flaherty Creative Writing Assignment

"The Sniper” by Liam O’Flaherty Creative Writing Assignment
Product Description
“The Sniper” by Liam O’Flaherty is THE short story for the disengaged readers in your class, for how better than pulling them in than a title that sounds like the most recent installment of Call of Duty? This short story is a vehicle for teaching a range of topics such as civil war, Ireland’s history and its current problems still between the North and the South--the dividing line namely over religion--plus more typical English goals such as understanding perspective, the ability for plots to not fall within the predictable exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution—there is NO resolution here! And, the “friendly letter” format. Oh, and all of this with fighting, guns, blood, cursing, drinking, and death. Good stuff! To add to the engagement is a creative writing assignment where students are the protagonist writing a letter to his/her mum explaining the events that have unfolded. A rubric to follow and an ELA Common Core Standard, to boot. Enjoy! Rockermom
