PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This writing prompt aligns with the Common Core Standards for writing: This writing prompt includes one article about Hurricane safety and one narrative text about a family who survived a hurricane.

This is the writing prompt:
Imagine that you are the only person home when a local newscaster suddenly issues a hurricane warning. You discover that the dangerous hurricane is headed straight for your island home.
Will you evacuate or ride out the storm? What steps will you take to ensure your safety during the hurricane? What are your reasons for your decision to evacuate or ride out the storm?

Write a well-organized essay of two or more paragraphs to explain how you survived the dangerous hurricane. Give details and facts from both passages that helped you decide to evacuate or to stay on the island.
Be sure to include reasons for your decision and details about your experience.
