Assessment, E-book


Use the 2006 AP English Language Exam prompt: William Hazlitt's "On the Want of Money" to assess students' understanding of satirical devices. I assign the prompt in class, in a timed environment to simulate the AP test. An additional prompt can be the 2005 exam question about "The Onion." This prompt asks students to analyze a fake advertisement for shoe inserts.<p/> <b><p>This resource is part of the <a href="http://www.curriki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Coll_slorntson/SatireUnit">Satire Unit</a> collection.</p></b>

I have been looking for a way to teach Satire..."A Modest Proposal" specifically, that will really connect with the material. I find this game to be a very useful tool to do this.

Thanks so much!
