Elementary/middle school students all over America are now taking the ACT Aspire tests....Yikes! The writing test requires students in grades 3-8 to type their response in 30 minutes (if they don't have accommodations), so it's imperative that pre-writing skills are practiced early and often throughout the year to ensure success.
Using this planner for that practice is a must! It incorporates the necessary elements in persuasion to help your students "sparkle" on the Aspire in a kid-friendly, easy to use, condensed format. As students learn to use it and memorize their favorite starters, start weaning them from it as test time approaches. Whether you give the Aspire or not, this planner will help your students use colorful position starters, transitions, counterargument statements, and conclusion components. "OREO" stands for "opinion, reasons, evidence or explanations, and restate opinion."
Look for my other ACT Aspire writing planners on Reflective Narratives and Expository/Informational modes!!!
