This is a fun way to get students thinking critically about an author or character! This lesson is Common Core based and requires using evidence in writing. You can use this MULTIPLE times a year since it is adaptable for any piece of literature.

You will get:
* A well-written exemplar paragraph
*A student writing page
*A condensed exit ticket version of this concept (also great for differentiation!)

Ideas for this lesson:
*Divide students by characters, have students work individually, and bring character groups together to form and present full playlists.
*Use as an emergency sub plans since it can be used at anytime during your curriculum
*Use as an "oopps I finished too early" go-to
*Use as a way to compare and contrast characters or authors
