PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Do you need independent writing activities for emergency sub plans, summer packets, blizzard bags, or enrichment?

This is a bundle of three independent writing activities appropriate for middle schoolers, in and out of a traditional classroom setting. Each assignment is designed to take 1-2 hours and reviews different skills. The three assignments are:

1. TV Episode Review - Students watch an episode of a TV show and review it critically, analyzing plot and conflict.
2. Song Portfolio - Students analyze a common theme across three songs.
3. How-to Article - Students write a procedural article.

Here are some ideas for using these activities:
-----------------------------------------------------

*Beach Bag (rising 7-8)*
Many teachers combat summer slide, or the skills students lose over a summer of not reading or writing. A beach bag is a take-home activity designed to reconnect students to their analysis skills from the school year.

*Blizzard Bag (6-8)*
Many districts are designating eLearning days as a way to keep students connected to the classroom in heavy winter weather. A blizzard bag is an independent activity that uses classroom skills. This activity is graded like a normal assignment.

*Enrichment (6-9)*
Some students need extra practice using some of these basic analysis skills. Use this activity in enrichment sessions.

What you get for each activity:
----------------------------------
-A task sheet/brainstorming page
-A prewriting activity
-A final draft template
-A self-evaluation rubric
-Teacher’s Rubric
