This resource can be purchased as part of UNWIND Unit Teaching Package bundle.

·······················································································································

Students will choose to write about 1 of 5 topics from the Unwind. This handout gives them the 5 topics, tracker grids to organize the quotes they plan to use while writing, and a grading rubric to work from.

The 4 pages of quotes trackers will help students organize their quotations / citations from Unwind for the various essay topics. Students are required to find 10 support quotes toward each topic. There is even extra space at the end for a student who thinks up a topic not listed in the packet and thinks there is enough proof to argue it in an essay about Unwind.

The Response to Literature and Persuasive grading rubrics are small enough to be portable and have been refined over years of essay grading to include most of the comments you'd want to write on an essay. This makes the grading process much faster but still allows the teacher the ability to give some feedback. Essays can take so long to grade, can't they? But a rubric like this really speeds up the process for us. Included 4-to-a-page for easy photocopying/chopping.

Enjoy Unwind! And remember..."This isn't a perfect world. The problem is people who think it is."
