Two fully planned and outlined, multi-paragraph compositions intended to be written in the middle and at the end of the book! The first discusses how race is discussed in the book, particularly the relationship between Kate and Sam the Onion man, and how this affects the town. The second examines how luck is presented throughout the book and asks students whether they think Stanley was truly cursed. Full rubric, brainstorm, organizer, and template included for each. Great for students who need additional writing support!
