PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The new common core standards will require students to relate their story and essay writing to two-three passages of text. The text may be nonfiction, fiction, articles, charts, quotes, or poetry.

This writing prompt contains three texts for the student to read (very short) and specific writing prompt directions. The type of writing the students will be composing will fall under the category "response to literature" because the student will be forced to reflect on their interpretation a poem and structure of a text along with connecting to personal schema. Part of the prompt will require comparing/contrasting two of the texts on the page.

The reading level of the text is fifth grade (due to the poetry), however, depending on the experience level of your students with understanding poetry and reflective writing, this prompt could be used with 5th or 6th grade students (or very advanced 4th graders). It can be used for home schooling or tutoring as well as in the classroom. The directions are detailed, involving multiple steps and critical thinking.

Thanks - it's so hard to teach young students how to closely examine text to integrate into their writing but I found this set up to be very helpful.

This ended up being much more complex than the test itself.

Thanks for the feedback - Are your students in the PAARC sampling? I'd love for you to message me if you have more details about the PAARC questions. I've only seen test samples.

Not really a question...more a comment. I am buying your products because they are so complex. I saw a comment made that said this was more difficult than the test, which I think is great. I'm using your resources to scaffold my teaching so that my students can take on the PARCC assessment next year. I have been successful with them and I appreciate all the time you put into making these!

Thanks-the feedback is really helpful. My district has been vamping up for PARCC and using similar activities. It's a philosophy change as well as a curriculum change so I understand when people say it is too difficult. I'm glad you've found ways to make these activities work for you. I'm in the process of making and trying new activities out with my students to post on TpT. Thanks again for the feedback!
