Descriptive Paper - And Then There Were None
The students will read the book, And Then there Were None by Agatha Christie. While you read, you will take notes on the different characters. They will write a descriptive paper of the characters and their personality traits. Another option to this assignment would be to describe the island and the house where the guests stayed. Students can write a descriptive paper on the characters or the settings.
First, the students need to read And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie and take notes. The students need to locate the passages that contain the characters' descriptions or of the settings used in the book and write the page numbers so they can refer to those descriptions when they are ready to write their essays. After they have finished the book, they need to return to the pages on the descriptions of each character or the settings and begin writing their essay. As they start writing their essay, they should use subheadings that separate each type of character, so readers can easily understand each of the characters. When they have completed their assignment, they can submit their essays to you so you can grade them.
You can grade the students on how well they wrote their papers and on their accuracy of their information about each of the characters or the settings if they choose to write about the island or house. Besides grading them on the accuracy of their content, you can grade them on sentence structure, paragraph structure, grammar, spelling, and punctuation.
