On Day 4, students should review the definition and characteristics of satire before reviewing and annotating the text, using the focus questions as a guide. Students should be able to clearly articulate how Swift uses satire to point out a very real problem in Ireland. This series of close reading lesson plans was created by a member of the 2015 Delaware Dream Team. Special Materials: Students will need a copy of the anchor text.
