Description

These 4 low prep resources for ancient and world civilizations, world geography, American history between the late 1400s and 1800, and the geography of the United States let your students review what they learned during the school year and then share their knowledge by writing persuasive letters about their subjects. Google Drive™ compatible versions are included in all the resources.

✓ Please note:

★ You can also buy each resource individually but you'll save 20% by purchasing this bundle.

What educators who have used this resource say about it:

♥ "Just what I needed. TY!" -- Arnilynne T.

♥ "Great resource for persuasive writing!" -- Megan M.

♥ "This is very helpful to own and have as a resource at the end of the year! I can't wait to use it again this year." -- Teaching with Mrs Pickett

Each resource includes a writing prompt in RAFTS format (Role, Audience, Format, Topic, Strong Verb) and comes in at least 2 versions:

* With space for writing a list of the topics studied.

* With blank space for writing other notes if desired.

Some prompts also have clip art in both color and black-and-white to aid students' memories about the topics.

Every resource includes:

* A printable version and a Google Drive version.

* At least 2 types of graphic organizers for taking notes.

* A pre-writing organizer to help students put their ideas in paragraph form.

* A model of a friendly letter.

* Lined and unlined pages for writing the first draft.

* Lined and unlined pages for writing the final copy.

* Assessment checklists so you can easily assess your students' work.

* Directions for an optional oral presentation component, if you would like to give your students practice in giving speeches.

The writing activities can be done in class or for homework; if done entirely in class, they will take 3 - 4 periods, depending on how much time is allocated for note-taking, pre-writing and revising.

Pages with lesson objectives, lists of ELA Common Core standards addressed, and sample WIDA Model Performance Indicators are also provided in each resource for your convenience.

You can use these resources remotely in 2 ways:

a) When teaching synchronously or asynchronously online, use the Google Drive version. If you are using a platform that allows you and your students to talk with each other in real time, you can have your students do the optional speaking activity — students can prepare their presentation at home and then deliver it to the class when everyone is online.

b) For students to do on their own: Photocopy the student pages (without or without the RAFTS, Objectives, and Checklist pages) and send the material home. Alternatively, if students have printers, email the pages to them and tell them to print the work out themselves. Tell students what to do and have them email/send you their work when they’ve completed it. Use the included evaluation checklist to correct students’ work. To do the optional speaking activity, students can prepare their presentation at home, then they can record themselves using any presentation program or app that allows them to do that. Students can post their presentations on a class website if it’s set up for that or email their presentations to you.

These culminating activities enable your students to review what they've learned over the past year in their Social Studies classes in a fun and engaging way!
