I created this differentiated graphic organizer for a 2nd grade writing unit in which students write a persuasive letter to the author.
1.Students choose a fiction book author they want to write a letter to.
2. Students will rate the book based on how many elements of craft (author's craft) they liked (pages 1, 3, 5)
3.Then they have the following choices:
(pages 1-2) Change a story element,
(pages 3-4) Write a sequel or
(pages 5-6) Write an alternate ending.
ELLs/ IEP student friendly. Can be used in other grades!
