Included in this product are 4 documents which explain and provide expectations for the assignment. These materials include an overview of the paper, 2 "writing process" help sheets that further outline the expectations and give direction on the structure of the paper, and a final rubric for grading.
This assignment expects that students choose three major motifs or "big ideas" found through their reading of The Glass Castle, provide supportive quotes to substantiate their points, and write an analysis of how each motif influences the Walls children.
Document is posted in Microsoft Word format, so you may change specific details in the document as you see fit for your classes. (I use my name and my co-teacher's name, so you can change it to your own name.)
