A Gift For Mom and Dad

Ninth graders read O'Henry's, Gift of the Magi before writing an expository essay. They watch a teacher PowerPoint about word definitions and explore the connotative as opposed to denotative meaning of "gift" in their essay. They present the essay as a gift itself after word processing it.
