This packet has all you need to make STAAR writers out of your 10th graders (ok....maybe with the addition of some good'ole fashion elbow grease, hours and hours of time to grade, and some pixie dust). It's also great for any non-10th grade Texas teacher doing a unit on persuasive/argumentative writing!
All the same, this is the full packet of EOC.STAAR formatted persuasive essays, focus activities, and resources that have helped my English kiddos be pretty successful (94% passing rate last year (2015)).
Here is what you get in this packet
• 10 EOC/STAAR formatted, original persuasive essay prompts of various, high-interest topics
• 6 EOC/STAAR Focused Mini Activities
• 4 Resource pages, including a list of persuasive topics
• 3 Bonus Sentence-level revision activities (great for stations)
*Note--There is an EDITABLE WORD DOC of this packet available as well, if you would rather be able to customize it to fit your needs.
