Description

Overview:
This writing activity for gifted learners might serve as a culminating activity or final assessment as part of a larger fiction-based genre study. Students will take part in close readings of a variety of fictional genres throughout the unit, such as parables, fables, folktales, fairy tales, myths, novels, and even poetry.  In this activity, gifted learners would work independently to close read The 13 Clocks by James Thurber. They will work to decipher the story and it’s genre, analyzing major components of the story (such as a central message, characters, setting, and/or events in the story) and evaluating those components by the various genre criteria they learned about in class and through their own online research.  This will culminate in an opinion piece arguing as to the genre of The 13 Clocks and potentially the creation of a new genre.  This lesson was developed by NCDPI as part of the Academically and/or Intellectually Gifted Instructional Resources Project. This lesson plan has been vetted at the state level for standards alignment, AIG focus, and content accuracy.
