Created by: Danielle Hall
On SALE now: Only $2 until 3/12!
Enrich your Short Stories unit with this bundle of three fabulous writing activities:
"Lady or the Tiger?" by Frank Stockton Argumentative Essay - Students choose an ending to defend and use textual evidence to support their claims.
"The Monkey's Paw" by W.W. Jacobs Mood Rewrite - Students analyze the established mood in a passage and then rewrite it with a new mood.
"Lamb to the Slaughter" by Roald Dahl Persuasive Essay - Mrs. Maloney is on trial for the murder of her husband. Students assume the role of either Mrs. Maloney’s prosecutor or her defense lawyer in the trial for the murder of her husband. Given the evidence in the story, students write a “closing statement” defending their chosen position.
These writing activities are presented in the “All-in-One” style:
*Brainstorming Worksheet – students collect textual evidence or practice the necessary style for the tasks
*Rubric – for easy grading! (Each task includes an adaptable rubric that you can use to set your own weights.)
