Restricted Use
Copyright Restricted
Rating

The writer will analyze and discuss the different perspectives of Atticus Finch and the lynch mob about the trial of Tom Robinson in To Kill a Mockingbird. The writer will then create two characters with opposing viewpoints. The final product will be a Poem for Two Voices in which the student shows the opposing views of the two characters they have created.
The focus trait in this assignment is voice; the writer will use the perspective of two different characters to show their opposing viewpoints. The support trait in this assignment is word choice; the writer will need to choose words that set a tone for the perspective of each character in his or her poem.

Conditional Remix & Share Permitted

After reading The Odyssey, students will write their own hero's journey narrative using Joseph Campbell's twelve steps of the hero's journey. Although students may choose to write a story set in Greek mythology, they can choose any setting for their story. Before writing, the students will discuss the hero journey in the Odyssey and popular books and movies. Then they will write their own hero's journey story with an original character and plot. Students will be assessed on development of their introduction, plot, and conclusion as well as character development, setting, and theme (lesson learned.) They will also be assessed on their organization (structure and transitions), style, voice, and mechanics. This unit was created for a classroom of tier two and tier three students who often struggle with organizing their thoughts for writing.
