Activities for Back-to-School & Year-Round in Middle & High School English
Connect, Motivate, Model—those are just part of the motto of Mary Ledbetter's Success One Step at a Time writing and reading / literature comprehension program.
These engaging activities not only connect students with their peers in the classroom, creating a writing workshop atmosphere, but with the "real" world as well.
The bundle includes research-based and classroom-tested activities such as some of the following:
- Who Are You Game
- Partner Interview Questions
- Mystery Person
- Who Am I Game
- Autobiographical Blurbs
- A Rose by Any Other Name
- Give Me Five Words
- Using Play-Doh in Writing
- Cup-Up Poems
- Snapshot Poems
- And more…
Most of these activities can also be applied to various aspects of literature (e.g., describing a character for the class to identify, composing short pieces representative of symbolism used in a fictional work, etc.).
The time required to complete the lessons range from a 45-minute class period to 20-30 minutes, depending on the age and ability-level of the students.
