Product Description

This packet includes a rigorous reading passage and questions, 3 writing prompts (1opinion, 1 informative, 1 narrative) in multiple formats, a hands-on STEM activity, and optional video links to build background knowledge and get information from multiple sources (CCSS skill!) all about Autism Awareness. Revising checklists, editing checklists, and color-coding charts for each writing type are also included.

These passages and prompts allow your students to learn about Autism, build compassion, express their thoughts through writing, and show leadership through a STEAM activity, all while completing a rigorous assignment and incorporating 21stCentury Skills. In fact, this can be an excellent lesson to use when you are observed!

Prompt Formats

Writing Prompts are provided in several formats:

•Prompt Pages (all prompts on one page)

•Prose of the Week (students go through the entire writing process doing one step at a time)

•Prompt With Lines (students read prompt and respond on lines)

•PowerPoint (project prompt on the board and students respond in their notebooks-saves paper!).

•Revising and editing checklists for each type of writing are also included.

You can use these as creative writing opportunities or to teach writing. I personally have my students color-code their writing by underlining certain required elements in different colors. The kids like doing this, and it is very effective because it is a hands-on way of having them revise their work while allowing me to see which students don’t understand how to effectively incorporate those elements. I’ve include suggested color-code charts

How to Use It

This packet is easy, easy, EASY to use because everything you need is there...all you have to do is print and go!

Ideas for use:

•Use this on Autism Awareness Day or anytime in April.

•After reading the passage, allow kids to choose which writing prompt they want to use.

•Use this for a week during your Writing Workshop time.

•Monday: read the passage and teach your skill focus of the week.

•Tuesday-Thursday: have them write to a different prompt each day. This will allow for a well-rounded writing curriculum.

•Friday: have students choose their best writing from the week and do a final draft.

•Use as morning work or homework. One of the writing prompt formats breaks down the writing into “bite-sized” pieces that would work well.

•Use this for a substitute. The reading passage and writing prompt are both available and well-explained, make it easy for a sub to use.
