This series of ten questions are useful for a number of activities. I have used them as the basis for Think-Pair-Share discussions followed by individual paragraph-writing. Most of the questions could also be the basis for a short essay, or for practicing transitional language to join 2-3 paragraphs.
Includes an one-page guide to writing paragraphs using the TEXAS method, with an example paragraph written about Marina;s character. Most students will benefit from this reminder and from seeing paragraph-writing exemplified in response to the text they are studying.
