Common Core Text-Dependent Writing Prompt Argumentative Grade 8

Common Core Text-Dependent Writing Prompt Argumentative Grade 8
Product Description
The new common core standards will require students to relate their story and essay writing to two-three passages of text. The text may be nonfiction, charts, quotations, environmental print, fiction, or poetry. In line with PARCC demands.

This writing prompt contains three texts for the student to read (very short) and specific writing prompt directions. The type of writing the students will be composing will fall under the category "argumentative" because the student will be forced to establish a viewpoint, support/defend it with personal schema, use some persuasive language, and use info from the text in the essay.

The reading level of the text is late middle school (due to the vocabulary and quotation) and the demands of the prompt lend itself to be more appropriate for upper middle school. It could possibly be used with low level ninth grade English students/high level seventh grade students to expose them to this type of writing.

The prompt could be used as test prep, a writing assessment, tutor work, enrichment, homework, or home schooling assignments.
