End of the Year ELA Lessons: A Graphic Essay

This was one of my favorite activities from this semester. Rather than assigning a full-on essay, have students present the information the gathered in a visual format. This graphic essay assignment includes a sample template and directions on how to assign a visual essay in your classroom.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Extremely Satisfied

“The documents have clear directions and are visually appealing. Students know exactly what is required and how to proceed through the process of writing an argumentative graphic essay. This is an especially helpful resource, because it gets students writing, researching, and arguing with a purpose. It’s also perfect for independent learning as students are able to challenges themselves to use more academic language and write a variety of sentence lengths or use simple language and sentences for your ESL students. And the best thing of all is that it’s READY-TO-GO! There is NO PREP involved other than having your topic(s) for students to choose from to complete the assignment. You could even go so far as having students choose their own!”
