Why Lesson Planet?
Young scholars create brochures about the humor of Mark Twain. In this literature-analysis lesson plan, students read "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County" and other short stories by Twain. Young scholars write analytical paragraphs and summaries of the texts. Students watch a video on Twain and research online about the Kennedy Center Mark Twain Prize for Humor. Finally, young scholars create brochures to illustrate Twain's humor.
