Are you drowning in essays? Looking for a way to have students show analytical thinking about a text in a meaningful way that won't send you to the crazy house? Try the one pager. Not only does it encourage students to think creatively and abstractly, but also it teaches them how to use quotations, symbolism, and images to convey how they experience a text.
This one pager activity focuses on the theme of a fictional or narrative nonfiction text. Students can complete it while they are in the middle of or when they are finished reading a text. It can be used for poetry, short stories, and novels. I enjoy using one pagers as a creative response to choice reading, but they are also appropriate for whole class novels.
Included in this teaching tool, you will find:
1. suggested use and tips
2. an informational "What is a one pager?" sheet
3. a menu of possible elements to include
4. 2 brainstorming pages
5. a rubric in both PDF and editable PPT formats
6. a structured template to show students where to put information as they sometimes get confused as to how to use all of the white space
