Gulliver’s Travels

Gulliver's Travels tells the story of a man who goes on voyages and encounters strange people. A unit plan introduces readers to the classic text, as well as excerpts from other examples of sarcasm and satire, such as "A Modest Proposal" and Animal Farm. Daily tasks prepare learners for the summative unit assessments, including a culminating writing task and a cold-read task.
