TWO OF THE WRITING ASSIGNMENTS
(1) Tiffany's Diary Activity / Figurative Language
> This is particularly engaging and fun! > Designed for use after chapter five.

metaphor, simile, hyperbole, and details from the novel.
> Example entry provided
> This is a fun and playful activity, students can get silly with it!
> No length requirement stated- teacher decides.
> Includes explanation of how students will peer grade one another.
> Rubric included
> After peer grading, it's easy for the teacher to glance at the color coding -done by the student grader- and check for accurate peer grading. Consequently, grade book entries are faster.
> Use of peer grading is not necessary to use the resource.
(2) The Story Continues….
> A post-reading creative writing assignment, not formal essay style.
> Blanks for teacher/student to fill in for flexibility in length requirement.
> Some of the requirements stated are: use of dialogue, a mood which is in sync with the novel’s mood, and writing follows naturally from the end of the book.
