This Word document gives you all you need to have your students write meaningful, detailed Odes. Included is:
-a brief introduction to teaching an Ode,
-two differentiated step-by-step assignment/instruction sheets (with checkboxes for each task) that you can give to students,
-rubrics for each (with categories for Structure, Process, Description, Spelling and Grammar),
-two suggested mini-lessons about odes and figurative language,
-one group activity about personification,
-and two differentiated mentor texts with questions.
The document is purposefully in Word so that you can tweak the instructions and/or rubric to fit your students' needs. Perfect for use in a writing workshop or as a single writing assignment.
