This lesson plan is a 6 page file that presents a Common Core aligned and Collins Writing designed lesson. Aligned to Common Core writing standards for 7th grade, it is easily adaptable to the 6th and 8th grades. The student is asked to write an argument based on a theme of the "The Diary of Anne Frank" that presents a thesis, cites textual evidence and uses it to make inferences and draw conclusions. Class discussion and guided peer revision strategies are used throughout the lesson. The lesson works equally well with book, play, movie or a combination of forms. File includes graphic organizers for discussion of theme, thesis, key vocabulary, and pre-writing that are highly adaptable for various teaching and learning styles.
