Product Description
Add rigor to your lessons with this Common Core Writing Task Paired Passages lesson! First, students complete close readings of two classic short stories: Kate Chopin’s “The Story of an Hour” and William Faulkner’s “A Rose for Emily.” Then, students practice writing a literary analysis constructed response. The prompt requires students to interpret universal themes and explore ideas of tradition and change.

The 29-page product file includes the following:
-explicit lesson plan with identified Common Core Standards
-anticipation guide
-contextual reading guides
-think aloud with sample annotation passage
-texts of the stories
-two character analysis graphic organizers
-Venn diagram
-literary analysis prompt with link to rubric
-key (including detailed responses for all activities and a sample essay)

Incorporating all strands of the Common Core English Language Arts (ELA) Anchor Standards, this "paired passages" lesson encourages students to practice skills in annotation, analysis, and synthesis. Students complete handouts with before-, during-, and post-reading strategies, which provide scaffolding for diverse learners. Afterwards, students respond to a literary analysis writing task that imitates the style of the PARCC prototype and asks them to consider universal themes. Use as a formative assessment to prepare students for standardized assessments or for any students needing practice with close reading and prose writing.

With its detailed instructions and samples, this resource would make an excellent lesson for a substitute if you will be out for a couple of days.
