During this week-long study of Jonathan Swift's "A Modest Proposal," students have examined the rhetorical strategies used by the author to create satire. For the culminating assessment, students will evaluate the effectiveness of these strategies in this piece of social protest literature. 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 annotated during the week and all of their notes from the close reading discussions.
