This resource is a great way to practice on-demand writing and prepare for the MDPT. The students are required to read and view sources, take notes based on guided questions, and engage in the writing process based on a prompt.
This resource includes an on-demand prompt, guided questions, a note-taking worksheet, a writing task checklist, and recommended texts and sources to use for four different topics. Those topics are Greek Mythology, Immigration, Exploration, and U.S. Government. The texts most closely align to 4th grade standards, but can be appropriate for other grades as well.
