The ACT Aspire is shaping the way students are now expected to test. The ACT Aspire assesses students on multiple levels, preparing them for college and career. The rigorous tasks begin at the 3rd grade level. I struggled finding resources to prepare my students for such a challenging task .. which led to the creation of my own products!
The most important things students can do to prepare for this part of the ACT Aspire exam is PLAN and PRACTICE! Students MUST reflect upon the prompt whether they have experienced the event or not. This is HARD! Help students gain confidence and brainstorming skills so they feel ready to answer any prompt that comes their way!
This product includes:
-20 Analytical Expository writing prompts!!
-3 Anchor Charts to get your students (singing) and thinking about informative/expository writing
-Student friendly outline and examples
-Student friendly checklist
-Rubric aligned with the ACT Aspire 4th Grade Writing Rubric
Each prompt, checklist, and rubric mirrors the ACT Aspire exam. I wish you good luck!!
