This lesson plan is anchored by the text "A Taste of Sticky Rice: Laos' National Dish" from Smithsonian.com. This lesson focuses on completing a culminating writing task based on the previous four lessons about the article on sticky rice. Students should be synthesizing key details and inferences from across the four previous days of reading to explain the literary techniques the author uses to support his view that sticky rice is integral to Laotian culture and daily life. Students may use the guided notes and the text to complete the writing task. The task itself must be completed independently. Special Materials: Students should have access to the following materials for this lesson: - Student guided notes sheets from the previous four lessons. - Writing task sheet. - Copies of the anchor text for all students.
