Product Description
This 2-page download contains three writing prompts regarding text analysis of Dave Eggers's nonfiction text Zeitoun. These in-class essay responses, made for one class period of final assessment, requires students to analyze key passages from the biographical story of one of Hurricane Katrina's heroes. Each prompt addresses a separate writing task: rhetoric, characterization, and theme.

Look for my other quiz packets for classics and contemporaries, such as Markus Zusak's The Book Thief, Khaled Hosseini's The Kite Runner, Stephen Chbosky's The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Chinua Achebe's Things Fall Apart, Mark Haddon's The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, Jon Krakauer's Into the Wild, Laurie Halse Anderson's Speak, Alice Walker's The Color Purple, Stephen King's On Writing, Kent Haruf's Plainsong, Daniel Keyes's Flowers for Algernon, Kaye Gibbons's Ellen Foster, Michael Cunningham's The Hours, Melvin Burgess's Smack, S.E. Hinton's Rumblefish, and Paul Fleischman's Whirligig.

Also check out my other materials for grammar and mechanics, literary units, film study guides, and writing instruction. Please let me know if I can be of any assistance either before or after purchasing a product; I'll be happy to help where I can.
