This is a lesson plan bundle that will help prepare your students for the state writing assessments. I have created a power point based on the Gettysburg Address that guides students through a 4 paragraph essay. Each slide instructs the students as to what content should be included in each paragraph, The power point is editable in case you would like to change the wording to be specific to the writing program you use. I have also included the actual prompt which has been modeled after the language used in state writing prompts.
As a bonus, I have included links that could be used to teach the importance of the Gettysburg Address prior to assigning the essay. You will be receiving links to a reader's theater, the text of the Gettysburg Address, writing rubrics, videos, and books that could be used to help your students gain the knowledge necessary to write about this topic.
