This one to two day NO PREP Valentine's Day activity is perfect for having your students do some close reading and creative writing for Valentine's Day!
The students read an origin story from 1912 about the adage "Love is blind." Then they answer close reading questions about the text. After this, they choose a cliche about love and write their own origin stories for the cliche.
Use as a formal creative writing assignment or as a reading and writing exercise.
Have students work in groups for a fun activity--and when they are done, they should share their stories with the class!
It comes with a rubric to grade the students' writing pieces.
