Reflection: Advanced Students Epitaph Character Inferencing - Section 2: Epitaph Inferencing


For those advanced students in the class, this lesson is a good one to challenge their writing and thinking. These students could try and create their own animal epitaph. They could pick an animal and try twisting known facts or stereotypes into a play on words. The epitaph would not have to be very long, just give an accurate concept connection to the animal.
