Students will spend 2 weeks reading a non-fiction text and working in a literature circle to understand its rhetorical strategies. The various roles are identified through a shared Google doc. There will be 5 literature circle meetings.
After reading and participating in the literature circle, students will be given a synthesis essay prompt. The response to the prompt will be generated in a Prezi to structure the essay rather than actually generate the essay. The link to the explanation in Prezi is below.
