As a mid-year mini-project I like to check the students' comprehension on plot and figurative language. I encourage the students to work with a partner to create their own Christmas short story to share with the class. Included in this purchase is the detailed instruction/expectations sheet I give the students and the rubric by which I grade their projects. I require them to demonstrate their knowledge on the elements related to plot (exposition, rising action, climax, etc.), theme, similes/metaphors/personification and characterization.
2 word documents- one rubric, one requirements
