PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Respond to nonfiction is a lifelong skill. Students need to understand a writer's purpose, the publisher and research's bias, manipulative language, and more. Almost every college professor asks students to judge and critique nonfiction writing.

This is the third set of nonfiction activities for secondary students.

This product provides five pieces of writing, with varied subject matter, from automobile safety to earthquakes. Each nonfiction article has TWO possible writing prompts. One prompt asks students to examine a writing technique employed (anecdote, organization) and a prompt to argue with an aspect of the article. These prompts help meet common core standards for older students.

As a bonus, included is a writing response to provide an example for students. The article is also a bonus and can be used as the sixth writing assignment.

It is Common Core aligned, and provides an outline of lesson plans for each article and writing assignment. It includes notes for the teacher and instructional sheets for the students.

It includes everything I use when teaching the lesson. I use it with my juniors and seniors, but it would work well for higher end freshmen and sophomores.

The Language Arts Classroom also has other nonfiction activities:
