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).
If you aren't a 10th grade English teacher in Texas, this is still for you! It works great with any persuasive/argumentative writing unit.
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 FULLY EDITABLE 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: I also have a PDF if you would rather have that file. And, if the dot background doesn't do it for you, just click it and hit delete :)
