This mini-unit is great to use as a summative assessment, after reading a short story or a novel, or as a standalone unit to teach about author’s intention and writing for an audience. This unit includes a step-by-step PowerPoint presentation, two Quick Write assignments, a research assignment, and an alternative writing assignment with a template and specific instructions.
By the end of this mini-unit students will be able to:
· Summarize a text they recently read and state their informed opinion on it.
· Research online reviews of a book and decipher what makes a review well-written or poorly-written.
· Consider the influence ones’ audience has on a writer and practice writing for a specific audience.
· Write an “online” (using a template modeled after amazon book reviews) literary review with appropriate word choice for their targeted audience.
