Writing assignment for ESL students
please read Amy Tan’s short story and respond to the questions
1. As a reader, find a sentence, expression or description in the story that stands out for you (will discuss these in class).
2. As a teacher:
-Identify an authentic student population for whom this story might be an appropriate reading assignment (based on their age and level of language proficiency).
-Based on your reading of this story, design a writing assignment for the student population you have identified. Be imaginative: as a student writer, what kind
of assignment would you have liked to have had in response to this story?
In a sentence, define your objective for the assignment (e.g., If you were to assign a summary, your objective might be “For students to demonstrate their
understanding of the story and to summarize its main ideas.”
Write one paragraph that explains the writing prompt (the assignment), including recommended length.
Write a second paragraph that explains why you selected this assignment.
PS: Please design an assignment other than a summary. However, your assignment need not be modeled after any assignment you have had in this class.
