I thought it was going to have two passages- I would love to see more prompts that contain two passages to cite from.
On  January 6, 2014The Reading Coach Diva answered:
I am sorry that you are disappointed in my product. Please check out the rest of my products. I do have writing prompts that ask students to cite from two different texts.
Be sure to check back soon and I will create more writing prompts citing answers with two related texts. Happy New Year!

This document has nothing to with the novel "Because of Winn Dixie"
On  May 29, 2013The Reading Coach Diva answered:
This writing prompt was created based on the nonfiction text paired with the story, "Because of Winn Dixie" in our Scotts Foresman Reading Series.

I decided to use the informational Text located behind the story, because the new Common Core focuses more on nonfiction text.

I do apologize if you felt like I mislead you! It was not my intention!

On  January 9, 2014,  Buyer asked:
What standards does this coincide with?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  January 9, 2014The Reading Coach Diva answered:
That is a great question. This is what i was thinking when I created the prompt.

I used this writing prompt with the story Because of Winn Dixie.

I noticed it was an informational piece of text about another type of animal and thought the wealth of information about Bear bodies would interest my students and motivate them to write a narrative (memoir) composition.

I focused on the following Common Core Standards when creating this writing prompt.

RI 4.9. Integrate information from two texts on the same topic in order to write or speak about the subject knowledgeably.

W.4.3. Write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events using effective technique, descriptive details, and clear event sequences.

a. Orient the reader by establishing a situation and introducing a narrator and/or characters; organize an event sequence that unfolds naturally.

b. Use dialogue and description to develop experiences and events or show the responses of characters to situations.

c. Use a variety of transitional words and phrases to manage the sequence of events.

d. Use concrete words and phrases and sensory details to convey experiences and events precisely.

e. Provide a conclusion that follows from the narrated experiences or events.

W.4.9. Draw evidence from literary or informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research.

b. Apply grade 4 Reading standards to informational texts (e.g., “Explain how an author uses reasons and evidence to support particular points in a text”).

I hope this answers your question!
Thanks!
