Product Description
Short Answer Informative / Explanatory assessment for the short story "Flowers for Algernon" by Daniel Keyes. Modified from an original activity posted on Achieve the Core by Washoe District.

The Flowers for Algernon Text Dependent Questions activity also by The House of Roush is an excellent lead-in for this this activity.

Includes:
* essay prompt and student directions
* graphic organizer- students analyze and rank specific evidence from the text
* sample answer key
* directions for writing
* 4-point rubric
* sample written response key

Follows the Common Core guidelines for Informative/Explanatory writing, asking students to cite evidence and provide analytic commentary.

If a full day/class period is provided for writing, then 30 minutes would be appropriate for students to independently work through the graphic organizer in order to prepare for the writing assessment.
