Constructed Response Questions & Rubrics,
with Graphic Organizers and Word Wall
Looking for more ways to incorporate writing and reading in your Biology classroom? Science Island is here to help! I have developed sets of Constructed Response Questions – what we used to call short answer or short answer essay questions – that are aligned to NGSS and CCSS for Literacy and are easily assessed with a clear, concise 3-point rubric. I have also included two other research-based literacy strategies that will contribute to the development of a deep foundation of factual knowledge and help students organize that knowledge in ways that facilitate application in their reading and writing in the science classroom.
NGSS: HS-LS1-5, HS-LS1-7, HS-LS2-4, HS-LS2-5
This Literacy Strategies product has four files:
1) Read This First: Includes a product overview, suggestions on using constructed response questions, graphic organizers, and a word wall in your classroom, image credits, and contact information.
