Are your students going to read (or maybe even finishing up reading) Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet? Would you like a straight-forward prompt to assess students' ability to think critically while also citing text evidence? If so, this is the item for you!
This item comes complete and ready to hand out to your students. Just print off the PDF, add in the due date by hand, and you're ready to go to the copier! If you'd rather edit the document in any way, you also will receive the Microsoft Word (.docx) version to make any changes you'd like.
Set at a reasonable price, this item includes the prompt (dealing with which three characters are most responsible for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet - which you could always edit to include "Other than Romeo and Juliet, themselves,..."). In addition, it also includes a rubric and a one-page suggested/sample outline to help guide students' writing.
This is an item that has been used, with great success, in my own classroom! Take it from a teacher who is "in the trenches" each day, just like you are! That's one of the benefit from buying a product from A Teacher's Teacher.
