Satirical Paragraphs

Opening

Think back to when you read one another’s satirical paragraphs and discuss the following with your classmates.

  • What if you hadn’t seen the names of the writers of the satirical paragraphs? Could you have guessed who the writers were just from what was written? Which ones?
  • What would be the giveaway—how would you have known?
  • What if your mom had written a satirical paragraph? How would it sound different?
  • What about your grandmother? How would her voice sound different?
