Informational Text Connections Rubric

Informational Text Connections project is due on Wednesday 2/15/17. Students will have Friday (2/10), Monday (2/13), and Tuesday (2/14) to work on this project in class. 
An outline for the project is available in Google Classroom. The outline explains the expectations for each section of the project. 

Play Analysis

Students read two variations of "The 3 Little Pigs"; they were given time in class to create a plot diagram for each play and answer questions over the plays. If students did not finish, they need to complete this assignment for homework. I am uploading the two plays and the questions.
