Five RAFT style writing prompts for characters from the novella Of Mice & Men by John Steinbeck.
A student checklist for what should be included in the written piece
A rubric that can be used to grade the written piece, other than the checklist
A brief description of the characters used for these prompts
These writing prompts can be used to develop a deeper understanding of character, as a way to assess comprehension, given to students who have been absent, or used when there is a substitute.
