Description

A fun activity for use with any novel or short story. Combines real-world writing with literature. Students use details and information from the story to create a how-to brochure related to a lesson or concept from the story. Students will use headings, bullet points or other methods of organization along with appropriate images for their tips. Rubric included.

Student instruction sheet includes rubric for easy grading. There are three versions of the printable included—one version includes grading on having students use positive phrasing (fun additional challenge), a second version includes the positive phrasing as an extra credit opportunity, and the final version does not include the positive phrasing component at all. Use the version that fits your classroom.

Use of positive phrasing: in how-to writing, one challenge is to write all items in positive tone. The writing would explain what to do rather than what not to do. For example, rather than writing “Do not travel alone when fifty-below or more” students would rephrase in a positive tone such as, “Travel with a companion when the temperature is lower than fifty-below zero.”

Contents:
Student Printable with Rubric: Version A, with grading on positive tone
Student Printable with Rubric: Version B, with extra credit for positive tone
Student Printable with Rubric: Version C, without positive tone included
