PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Analysis of word choices, inferences and implications of character development in descriptive fiction writing is a vital part of critical thinking. This multi-day, multi-level, multi-genre series of interactive lessons--presented via a five-page handout-- is designed for small groups and/or partners to develop both reading and writing skills, via fiction, and culminate in metacognitive analysis via personal narrative. Middle-schoolers (and even 9th graders) will benefit from the structure of this series of fun, creative lessons that has built-in guidelines to elevate consciousness of concise, purposeful word choices. This lesson packet could be used for 4 or 5 days of workshop-style lessons, with each small group sharing examples with the entire class, if time permits. Kids enjoy playing psychologist, so to speak, in analyzing character traits presented via word pictures that they and their classmates have carefully crafted. The final lessons involve SHORT ESSAY RESPONSES (format guidelines/mnemonic devices included), with an emphasis on learning about their own writing and reading styles.
