Using Short Excerpts from Novels

Bookmark and Share 

Here is another great lesson from Writing Fix, the Northern Nevada Writing Project.  I think it is a great example of how to create an appreciation for well written lit and making personal connections in a meaningful way.  Enjoy:)

What Your Room Says about You!

Here's a lesson that really celebrates how to use just a short excerpt from a novel to inspire original writing. Your students do not need to read the entire novel to do this writing, but we bet you'll inspire some of your readers to find this book independently, based on the excerpt you share. Students write and revise a setting description about their rooms and their personal treasures.
