PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This 106-page document is everything you need for a short story reading and analysis writing unit (intended for 7-9th grade) driven by formative and summative assessment, data analysis, and Common Core skill practice! Nothing has been missed here! The document begins with complete objectives and notes to the teacher (see sample preview), that suggests timing and lesson planning. The student study guide includes spots for notes on literary device definitions and literary device recording for 5 short stories ("An Arrest" by Bierce; "Lady or the Tiger" by Stockton; "The Lottery" by Jackson; "The Cask of Amontillado" by Poe; and "The Veldt" by Bradbury). The study guide also includes "Passage Focus" sets of multiple choice questions for 3 stories that will assess student reading comprehension, literary device application, and theme analysis. The concept behind the “Passage Focus” is to allow students to look closely at sections of text to dig deeper into their understanding of the story, while allowing the teacher to assess student ability and skill practice. One of the "Passage Focus" activities includes graphic organizers for data analysis of student performance. The study guide continues with paragraph writing assessments and outlines for writing about literary device and theme. Shortly following the study guide is a student reading packet that includes all 5 stories. The teacher guide includes my teacher notes for the definitions and stories; answer keys to "Passage Focus" multiple choice; paragraph writing grading rubrics; graphic organizers for data analysis; and teacher assessment reflection worksheets. The teacher guide is followed up with useful writing revision materials. A unit assessment (unit test) is included that tests reading comprehension, literary device definitions, unit literature, and paragraph writing assessment. The key includes multiple choice answers, suggested answers for unit literature short response; grading rubrics for the paragraph writing, data analysis graphic organizers, and teacher assessment reflection worksheets. Finish off the unit with a full-length essay analysis of literary device, complete with directions and rubric, prewrite graphic organizers, directions on introductions and conclusions, as well as a worksheet on word choice revision. I guarantee that you’ll be pleased with your purchase of this unit. It will be complete with more than enough materials for the unit, and will allow you to get a handle on the data of your students’ performance. Success will be evident, and you will be able to concretely prove that your students are learning something important about reading and writing.
