In this module middle school students analyze Daniel Keyes' short story, "Flowers for Algernon," focusing on RL.8.3 and W.8.2. This module acts as a springboard into literary analysis by having students study how an author reveals a character's persona over the course of the text. Further, it provides an opportunity for students to reflect on how their interactions with text impact their assertions, written responses, and explicit and implicit understanding of the text.
