Poetry and Concept Attainment Activities: Unit to accompany short stories: "Eleven", "Scout's Honor", and "All Summer In A Day". The main focus is to move towards specificity in writing.
This unit contains very clear lessons to follow that accompany those three short stories listed above. I made this for 6th graders, but the stories can work with high-level 5th through 8th.
Practice cards are included to help the students move towards the concept. Directions and a template for the "I Am" Poem activity, and a concise rubric to score the poem help make up this unit.
Be sure to check out another reading and writing activity I have created for the short stories.
