Inside The Classroom
Students in Mrs. Katie McIlvanie’s seventh-grade ELA class recently wrote paragraphs in response to the question “What can cause a sudden change in someone’s life?” Prior to writing their responses, they studied three texts sharing the common theme of transformation or change: an informative article titled “At the Crossroads,” Robert Frost’s poem “The Road Not Taken,” and Israel Horovitz’s dramatic version of Charles Dickens’s “A Christmas Carol.” Students were required to use any one or all three of these texts to provide text evidence in support of their response to the prompt.
