PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Meet CCSS for Writing during your D.A.R.E. Unit!

The culmination of the D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) program for fifth-graders is the D.A.R.E. Essay. Using D.A.R.E. workbooks & the knowledge that they have gained during classroom discussions with their D.A.R.E. officer, students will explain the D.A.R.E. program and prove that it is a valuable program for fifth-grade students through their discussions of the harmful effects of substances such as alcohol, tobacco, marijuana, and/or prescription opioids; and the positive results of the D.A.R.E-Decision-Making-Model .

These "Ready To Print" student pages meet SEVEN of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in English Language Arts (ELA) for Grade 5 Writing & Language and support students through the entire Writing Process!

With this product, students focus on just three “Must-Have’s” for each draft—not tackling everything all at once. This allows them to be successful a little bit at a time while constructing a D.A.R.E. Essay that is top-notch by the end of Draft Three. Drafts are scaffolded and include Preparation Pages to support students using a gradual-release-of-responsibility model as well.

After Draft Three, students can publish in any way that you choose using technology. These essays will definitely be the highlight of your students' D.A.R.E. Graduation Ceremony!

I have included a Student Self-Evaluation and a Teacher Rubric for assessment.

Thank your for your interest and I hope you enjoy this product from Project Hallway!
