Enjoy this mini-writing assignment I use with my students at the beginning of the Common Core Module novel, Dark Water Rising. Students reflect on the novel quote, “You’re too young to know what you want” (7). Students make a claim in response to the prompt At what age are individuals old enough to know what they want? Students use the chart to guide them in composing a paragraph with an introduction, conclusion, smooth transitions and two pieces of evidence that support your claim. A fun Common Core-aligned creative writing activity?
Enjoy! Please check out my TpT for additional Dark Water Rising products, as well as other ELA and literature materials. Happy teaching!
