Product Description
This performance assessment is used with "A Raisin in the Sun" by Lorraine Hansberry, but it is transferrable to any novel, short story, or play that you have read together in class. The assignment has two parts: a creatively written piece (CCSS narrative writing) and a justification paragraph (CCSS informational writing) during which the students defend their creative choices. Read more about the assignment below:

PART I – The Scene. Students are expected to additional scene to the play they have just studied before it becomes a movie next year! This scene can take place in the middle of the story, before the story begins, or at the very end.

PART II – Justification Paragraph. Demonstrating their ability to use evidence to defend their choices, students will be asked to justify how they made certain writing decisions, explaining their choices utilizing textual evidence from both their own writing and the text.

*BONUS: I've included two relevant CCSS-aligned rubrics from iParadigms, LLC ©
