It's a two in one! You will receive two writing prompts with brainstorm areas, a modified response graphic organizer, and PowerPoint writing instructions to use during the writing process. Great for both struggling and excelling writers!
Writing prompts: One for Act II and one for Act V in which students will produce a thesis, claim paragraph, and counterclaim paragraph. My instructions are not for a full essay, but you can turn these into full essays by asking students to write using the entire graphic organizer on the writing prompt.
Each writing assignment comes with instructions, thesis checkpoint, graphic organizer to choose quotations for two claims and one counterclaim, and instructions on how to cite Shakespeare.
I teach this by introducing the parts of argument writing, then students write a thesis and choose evidence for the graphic organizer, then write. After I use the revision PowerPoint for students to either self or peer edit.
Rubric for each paragraph and a graphic organizer for a modified response is also included.
