 Common Core Standards 6th Grade Writing LessonFor Grades 6-8, administered in five 60-minute classroom sessions. This lesson requires an Internet connection and access to computers for students. Also, a large screen at the head of the classroom for teacher(s) is preferable.This is a multi-day Common Core Standards 6th grade writing lesson in which students are asked answer prediction questions periodically throughout the reading. As a final activity, students enter into a directed conversation and writing activity in which they compose a response to the narrative in “The Tell-Tale Heart.” This response takes one of two forms: either an acrostic poem or a comic strip. This works well as a Halloween-themed lesson or to kick off a mystery unit.
