High schoolers assess their understanding of Twelve Angry Men. They create flashcards for vocabulary terms, summarize one of the acts, construct a diorama and complete character wheels. They choose from other activities including creating their own mini-play, board game, and writing a two-page story set in the past.
Encourage your class to use sensory details in their writing with this activity! This worksheet provides a short passage about dancing princesses and asks young writers to identify sensory details, develop a setting for a folktale, and write a description of the setting. It includes two graphic organizers to help class members categorize details and plan out the setting they are going to describe.
Readers reflect on enjoyable stories they know, brainstorm criteria that make a story "good," analyze a New York Times article about innovative children's performances, re-envision classics on their own, and peer edit drafts. Use this as enrichment for gifted readers who readily grasp the vocabulary, but for whom the content (fairy tales, children's performances) is still relevant. Plan to spend time to make the material accessible. A thorough, thoughtful resource.
