The new common core standards will require students to relate their story and essay writing to two-three passages of text. The text may be nonfiction, charts, quotations, environmental print, fiction, or poetry.
This pack has two prompt and each of the these writing prompts contain three texts for the student to read (short) and specific writing prompt directions. The type of writing the students will be composing will fall under the category "response to literature" because the student will be forced to reflect on the underlying metaphor in a central text along with connecting to personal schema. PARCC aligned activity.
The reading level of the text is early middle school however the demands of the prompt lend itself to be more appropriate for upper middle school and low level ninth grade English students.
This could be used as test prep, a writing assessment, tutor work, enrichment, homework, or home schooling assignments.
