8th grade mini-essay assignment: To Kill a Mockingbird

For this month’s writing assignment, we will work on a mini writing assignment. For options 9 or 10 you will write an analytical, or explanatory essay that answers one of the prompts from the webpage below. For full credit, your writing should make a claim, have compelling language, use at least four pieces of textual evidence, and be at least four paragraphs long with each paragraph having a focus statement. This will be worth 40 points and is due on the first day we return from our break (2/27/17). EACH DAY LATE WILL RESULT IN A 2 POINT REDUCTION PER DAY.
