End of Unit 3 Assessment: On-Demand Writing— Photograph and Song Choices for a Film

Ready, set, write! Every great film begins with a script and every presentation starts with a plan. Directors use their research and experience to compose an essay explaining the rationale behind the musical and visual choices for their film on the Little Rock Nine. Learners use previously completed worksheets to assist them in the writing process, and then engage in a self-assessment.
