This Word document gives all you need to guide students in writing meaningful and descriptive Setting Sketches. It includes:
--a brief introduction to teaching a Setting Sketch,
--two differentiated step-by-step assignment/instruction sheets (with checkboxes for each task) that you can give to students,
--rubrics for each (with categories for Structure, Process, Description, Spelling and Grammar),
--two suggested mini-lessons (Sensory Details and Theme),
--and two differentiated mentor texts.
The document is purposefully in Word so that you can tweak the instructions and/or rubric to fit your students' needs. Perfect for use in a writing workshop or as a single writing assignment.
