I’ve written before about how I like to keep the “art” in ELA. And one of my favorite ways of doing that is to have my students complete a “One-Pager” at the end of a good, meaty story. These make the perfect alternative to traditional assessments.
“One-Pagers” have been around for a while now and there are so many different ways you can use them. I like them as a replacement for a quiz/test. It’s a different, more creative, way of having kids show you what they know. I recently posted a picture on social of my students working on one-pagers for the Ray Bradbury story, “Dark They Were, and Golden-Eyed.” This is a story in our anthology and we use it to talk about mood and genre.
Many people asked for a copy of my instructions and rubric and I am happy to share! Just be sure to make a COPY to your own Google Drive before editing it.
