Atticus and Friends Evidence-Based Writing To Kill a Mockingbird Chapter 15

Atticus and Friends Evidence-Based Writing To Kill a Mockingbird Chapter 15

(0)
This product is a writing task that requires reading chapter 15 of Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird. This writing task guides students through the process of supporting a claim with text evidence. To support the claim, students will select the best text evidence from a given passage, present that text evidence in a written paragraph, and also analyze how or why the text evidence presented supports the claim. This 11-page product includes a vocabulary list for understanding the necessary writing concepts for presenting text evidence, the writing task, the passage, a guided planning page with exemplar, a starter response with one piece of text evidence, a key for identifying the necessary writing concepts, and two choices of rubrics for scoring. Below are the six concepts used in this package for teaching students how to present text evidence: TRANSITION — A word or phrase used to connect one idea to the next. LEAD IN — Gives context or background information to the text evidence. When are we? Where are we? In brief, what’s been happening plot-wise leading up to this text evidence? ATTRIBUTIVE TAG — Whose words were borrowed? Are those words best described as narration, thinking, or dialogue? TEXT EVIDENCE — Purposefully selected because something about it makes it some of the best evidence to support a(n) thesis, claim, argument, stance, statement, or answer. CITATION — MLA in-text citation (Author 283). LEAD OUT — It’s analysis. It answers HOW or WHY the text evidence helps support the argument being presented? As part of the analysis, the LEAD OUT often picks apart the author’s use of word and phrase choices, including literary elements and writing techniques used. How do these writing choices made by the author support the thesis? Because lead out is analysis, it often involves making inferences. Thus words such as suggests, implies, and indicates are often necessary to use.

Close Read for Chapter 24 of To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

This package is a close reading task for an excerpt out of chapter 24 of To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. This package includes a 78-line passage, 28 guided questions and fill-in-the blanks, an answer key, a culminating writing assignment, and an initial activity to give purpose to reading the chapter in its entirety. The close read focuses on a line Miss Maudie delivers in chapter 24: “His food doesn’t stick going down, does it?” The events leading up to her words, and what happens immediately after, often leave students dizzy and unable to follow. This close reading task clears up confusion, and strengthens both their understanding of Miss Maudie and the town of Maycomb. Below is the context and directions given to students during the guided close read: Context: In chapter 24, through Scout’s narration, readers attend a missionary circle meeting for the women of the church. Some of the neighbors are invited for refreshments. Aunt Alexandra is hosting the all-female affair in her brother’s home, and has invited Scout to attend. It’s an effort to introduce her to the world of women. In the passage provided, the social-hour conversation has just turned from the African tribe Mrs. Grace Merriweather appears to care so much about to more local topics, including Maycomb’s African American community and the recently completed trial of Tom Robinson. Much of the passage details the conversation between Mrs. Grace Merriweather and Mrs. Gertrude Farrow, who, according to Scout, are the first and second most devout (religious) ladies in all of Maycomb, respectively. Our narrator, however, loses the thread of conversation when she starts daydreaming. It’s your job to closely read between the lines to figure out what happens in this awkward social situation. Directions: Closely read the passage provided and reference the specific details in it as you answer the questions below on a separate sheet of paper:
