Product Description
This lesson is best taught after chapter 16 of TKAM. It provides good and bad writing examples about how Aunt Alexandra is a morally ambiguous character, possessing both good and evil qualities. Students are provided with a paragraph puzzle that includes a topic sentence, two assertions, two examples, two elaborations, and a clincher statement. They work together to best logically structure the paragraph. Then we evaluate the pieces comparing them to revised pieces to help them understand what makes good argumentative writing about literature.
