Are you struggling to think of activities to accompany texts that students will enjoy? This writing activity is aligned to CCSS and aids students in analyzing supplemental texts, anchor texts, as well as citing specific evidence from both. Students create a visual, write a written justification, and present their projects to the class. That's hitting a lot of standards with one activity!
My students really loved this assignment, because it allowed them to choose their own quote and gave them the freedom to be creative. It also made them take an active role in their learning. The activity sheet includes a picture of one of the projects that my students created. Created by topgrump.
