PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This product includes everything you need to guide your 8th grade students through a comprehensive, analysis paper that evaluates the writing style of a short story author. Whew! It sounds intimidating, but I promise you that the resources attached will make it easy to help your students from the beginning (choosing an author from the list provided) to the end (using the Common Core-aligned rubric to assess their work)

Included:
Overview - this describes the project to the students, includes requirements and a handy checklist for students to monitor their progress, and a list of short story author. Also included is the Important Dates calendar I use in the classroom. Feel free to adapt it to fit your needs!

Assessment - the rubric is completely Common Core aligned, with goals, descriptions and points already determined!

Graphic Organizers - Two graphic organizers are included to help your students as they research their author and analyze two short stories

Rough Draft Outline- I included a two-page document explaining exactly how to set up an analysis paper. I show my own example, then give blanks for the students to fill in their own information. Great accomodation resource!

Peer Edit Sheet - A specific peer edit checklist designed for this essay. It includes an editing practice at the bottom so students are aware of the grammar rules they should be looking for
