Are you looking for a NEW engaging way to get students excited about essay writing? Exploring super powers intrigues even the most reluctant writer.

"Many forms of fictional characters have superhuman, supernatural (beyond scientific understanding), or paranormal (psychic) abilities. These abilities are often referred to as super powers. Super powers are especially important in the fictional universes of comic book stories, movies, and video games. Explore mentor texts or materials – stories with a superhero as the main character."

Now…

"As a result of your superior genius and incredible character, YOU have been awarded one super power. What super power will you choose? (WARNING! This will NOT be an easy decision. Good luck.) Perhaps, writing a personal essay will help."

This item includes:

A quote (for display purposes) by Abraham Lincoln with vocabulary and discussion questions written to encourage critical thinking
"What is a Persuasive Essay?" anchor chart
A cover for student materials
Brainstorming a list of super powers and then narrowing the list to the top three
Directions for writing a thesis statement, three supporting reasons with relevant detail, and a concluding paragraph
A rough draft essay checklist
Directions for publishing a final draft essay
An essay cover with directions for illustration

This item is aligned to the common core and easily allows for differentiation.

Perhaps you're interested in a book report, using both fiction AND nonfiction text, that explores superheroes.
