Middle School Common Core Exemplar for ELA: Monk’s “Words We Live By”

By reading and re-reading the passage closely combined with classroom discussion about it, students will explore the questions Monk raises and perhaps even pursue additional avenues of inquiry. When combined with writing about the passage and teacher feedback, students will form a deeper appreciation not only of Monk’s argument and the value of struggling with complex text, but of the Preamble of the Constitution itself.
