Product Description

Help your students write about and analyze quotes with this Writing Spotlight mini-unit. This writing unit for middle school and high school ELA includes teachable content and student resources to help them improve their ability to write about quotes in essays.

"This quote shows..." "This shows..." "In this quote..." If you are tired of reading these phrases in student essays, this resource if for you! This unit helps students identify and improve commentary writing.

This unit includes:

  • a 35 slide, editable PowerPoint presentation for direct instruction and whole-class exercises
  • 6 PDF pages of student resources
  • Answer keys
  • Writing examples

Aiming to improve student writing, each Writing Spotlight unit focuses on one aspect of writing. I recommend that you incorporate these mini-unit spotlights into your instruction one at a time. Each time you assign a new, substantial writing assignment, incorporate a new Spotlight to create strong, confident writers.
