Introducing a quote is a great way to allow students to look at things from a different perspective and make the necessary connections to the content being studied. "Writing and Mini Research Activities Using Quotes" is a great way to practice these critical-thinking skills.
This IS included in my mega bundle: ALL of my WRITING RESOURCES GROWING BUNDLE.
Because they are shorter than typical works of non-fiction, responses to quotations are less intimidating for struggling students, yet still effective as thought-provoking devices.
This year-long activity is 140 pages in length and includes 243 quotes easily adapted for classroom use. Use for journal writing prompts, reflective writing, discussion starters, or for mini-research projects.
This lesson is aligned with the Common Core Standards for English Language Arts (Writing) Grades 6-12. It is also aligned with the Common Core Literacy Standards for History/Social Studies, Science, and & Technical Subjects. For teachers in those areas, this is an easy way to incorporate the required writing and reading in your field.
Total of 140 pages (243 quotes).
Includes 10 pages of handouts, 105 pages of large-font quotes for display on projector or to be printed & posted in classroom, 17 pages of quotes in smaller font, and 5 pages for teacher's guide, helpful links, sources for additional quotes, and standards.
If you are looking for specific journal writing prompts, I also have a Powerpoint package that includes a year of prompts (detailed questions for both expository and creative writing), including history and pop culture prompts: A Year of Journal Prompts
