Can be used in any grade level. Read the book and play any of the two versions of the movie! This can be taught in a week or shorter/longer as you need. A compare and contrast thinking map, pre-write, rough draft, edit, revise, and final draft sheets are provided. A quick time filler needed for those weeks leading up to Christmas break! The color coding on the thinking map and pre-write are useful for any student, particularly those who are EL and struggle understanding how to write. The visual will help them connect how to write and what their thoughts mean.
A peer edit sheet is available for purchase separately if you'd like to help students keep on track to look for specifics while editing their peer's paper.
