This folder contains four one-paragraph examples in persuasive, compare /contrast, descriptive, and narrative modes that provide the initial practice students need in order to develop more in-depth essays on state tests as well as in the classroom.
All of these writings are followed by questions for the whole class, partners, or individuals. The folder is also a perfect activity for partnered students to complete while the teacher conferences one-on-one with students.
The analyses involve literary terms (theme, characterization, textual support, symbolism, inference, etc.)
and writing components (simile, Magic Three, repetition for effect, personification, humorous tone, etc.)
Each folder includes instructions on many options for their use.
