In this lesson, one of a multi-part unit from EDSITEment, students identify key events in Rudyard Kipling's life and describe their effect on his story "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi" (part of "The Jungle Book"). Students then identify the geographical and social context in which "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi" was created, demonstrate comprehension of plot events and character motivations, describe the author's purpose and evaluate the techniques used to achieve it, and identify and differentiate between facts and examples of personification.
