Description

While composing this well-formatted vignette, students will experiment with the literary devices, anaphora, and allusion. Having done so, they can easily transfer these techniques to more complex formats. This form of composition encourages creativity while teaching the importance of sensory details and word choices for establishing tone and mood. Perhaps equally important, this experience will teach your students that writing is fun! A mentor text is included to help get them started.

The short mentor passage, "The Magic of Winter," provides a model for this assignment. Upon completion, students will understand how to:
write a vignette,
use anaphora to create textual rhythm,
use allusion to stimulate the reader's interest,
format a vignette, and
reflect on some aspects of the winter season.
