This four-passage text set is accompanied by an argumentative prompt regarding the topic of the relationship between homework and student learning. It's a perfect assignment to engage students, as most students will have a personal opinion going into the assignment. On that note, it will also strengthen your students experience with the idea of using the text to support their writing, rather than their own personal experiences.

Modeled after AIR Testing, which is used in numerous states across the country, it would also fit well into a PARCC simulation. The text set, itself, is 5 pages long.

As with all products sold by A Teacher's Teacher, I take great pride in providing materials in multiple forms. In the case of this item, you will receive the text set and prompt in a ready-to-use format for easy accessibility (.pdf) as well as a file that you can open and edit, to best fit for your own classroom needs (.docx). In addition, I have also provided the option to use a quick-sharing link for Google Docs, in case you use the Google Suite of Apps. All you'll have to do is open the Word or PDF file labeled for Google Docs, copy the link provided, and paste it into your web browser. From there, follow the directions on the Word document or PDF to save it to your Google Drive.

If you're interested in this argumentative text set you might also be interested in the other text sets I have available in my store (including an informational set on skydiving, an argumentative set on the use of Romeo and Juliet in the curriculum (both of which come as a value-saving bundle), as well as an argumentative set on the use of cell phones in the classroom.
