PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This performance task is the ideal project to be used along with your study of the ancient Maya.

This performance task consists of a pre-teach activity, three non-fiction passages, as well as a video link, graphic organizers, and constructed response questions. Students will work to read, take notes, and then plan and write a full length essay based on the sources.

There are three different writing prompts included in this performance task as well. These include a narrative, expository/informative, and opinion/persuasive. This is similar to what students see on the SBAC test. It is up to the teacher if all students will write on the same style of essay or if students will be assigned different writing prompts.

Included are scoring rubrics and scored examples for the constructed response questions, as well as scoring rubrics for all styles of essays.

Incorporate authentic reading and writing into your study of ancient cultures and history, while helping your kids prepare for the future.
