This is an effective yet simple how-to for students to utilize as a resource while writing their own short answer responses.
The front of the page has the step-by-step in simple terms, and the back includes an example using the movie Shrek. Students can use these instructions and example to model their own short answer response.
The Texas STAAR tests for English require students to write at least 2 of these responses, counting as 9 items apiece. If not done well, students are at a much greater risk of being unsuccessful on these exams.
I have many other resources available for teaching the short answer response, including a free one-page state rubric! Check out my other offerings, and let me know if you need something I just may not have listed yet.
