Includes detailed instructions for writing assignment, detailed rubric, and a list of 25 theme strips to assign to each student to write their short story about.
My students loved this assignment because finally they can write a story!
(It mentions pseudonym/student id in the instructions because you may have students hide their identity if you choose to switch papers for peer review).
My lesson plan with this assignment that I would like to share...
I assigned each student their own theme (a way to use differentiation).
Students had a week to complete.
Students came into class with assignment ready to turn in.
I will collect papers and distribute out to the class. Students will read their peer's paper, fix any grammar mistakes, and write the theme they think matches the story.
Students then turn in papers.
