Product Description
Here is a digital writing task resource for Google Drive and Microsoft One Drive. Much like my popular printed lesson, guide students through close readings of the poem, "How Do I Love Thee? Let Me Count the Ways" by Elizabeth Barrett Browning and the story, "Gift of the Magi" by O.Henry. Then facilitate their understanding of the speakers’ attitudes and central themes as they construct connections between the texts. These classic texts help meet expectations of Common Core Standards and provide practice with a prose constructed response. This would make a meaningful lesson for Valentine's Day.

Activity handouts focus on before, during, and post-reading strategies. Furthermore, a slide with model annotations helps to scaffold instruction. After reading, students write an essay that imitates the style of the PARCC analysis writing task. Whether or not they will face PARCC assessments, this lesson provides instruction for any students needing practice with close reading and essay writing. Furthermore, this lesson incorporates all strands of the Common Core English Language Arts (ELA) Standards.

This resource includes a 16-page PDF file with the following:
-digital instructions for implementing with Google Drive and Microsoft OneDrive,
-explicit lesson plan with identified Common Core ELA Anchor Standards, and
-answer key (includes detailed responses for all activities and a sample essay, making this a valuable emergency substitute lesson plan).

In the PDF there is a link to 19 Google slides with the following:
-anticipation guide,
-building background handouts,
-think aloud sample annotation,
-texts of the story and poem (public domain)
-L.I.S.T. poetry graphic organizer,
-Venn diagram, and
-analytical essay prompt with rubric.
