Product Description
Do you need an independent writing activity for emergency sub plans, summer packets, blizzard bags, or enrichment?

This TV Episode Review is appropriate for middle schoolers, in and out of a traditional classroom setting. It asks students to view an episode critically and write a review. It has been designed to take between 1-2 hours, including the viewing of the episode.

Here are some ideas for using this activity:
----------------------------------------


*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 (6-7)*
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 (6-8)*
Some students need extra practice using some of these basic analysis skills. Use this activity in enrichment sessions.

Skills reviewed:
--------------

-Summarizing Plot (Exposition, Rising Action, Climax, Falling Action, Resolution)
-Identifying Characters
-Analyzing Conflict (Man vs. Man, Man vs. Nature, Man vs. Society, Man vs. Self)

What you get:

-A task sheet/brainstorming page
-A prewriting activity
-A final draft template
-A self-evaluation rubric
-Teacher’s Rubric
