PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Enrich your study of W.W. Jacobs’ “The Monkey’s Paw” with this print-and-go creative writing assignment. Students analyze the established mood in a passage and then rewrite it. This is a great assignment for students to practice creating mood in a short, creative work. This can be done in partners or alone.

Hint: I would suggest letting students rewrite one of the three parts. Dialogue can be kept the same, but attributions (“she said hysterically”) should be changed.

This writing activity is presented in the “All-in-One” style:
----------------------------------------------------------

*Project Description
*Brainstorming Worksheet – students practice “rewriting” skills on a few sentences before they move on to an entire scene
*Rubric – Choose between analytic and holistic versions
*Printer-friendly versions - prints as a half-sheet with the rubric on the front and brainstorming on the back)
*Editable version (.doc)

Have students attach this whole page as a cover sheet for their essay.

Please respect all terms of use as detailed at the end of this document. Enjoy!
