Use this planning page and sample response-to-literature set to get students writing about ANY text they have read. Students will read a text of your/their choice, create a main idea statement regarding literary elements/story structure, add transition words and quotes, and make a concluding statement. They will also analyze a sample paragraph by marking up the aforementioned elements. Finally, a paragraph frame/starter will get them on the their way to writing theirs down! It's all tailored and made for setting them up for success. This is also a great bridge to an essay!
