Do you have students who are struggling with the Part 3 Text-Based Response section of the new NYS Common Core ELA Regents?
I teach in the inner-city and many of my students struggle with passing the ELA Regents. Some of my students have had nervous breakdowns over trying to pass the exam. I created a graphic organizer and outline with those students in mind. They came back to me after finally passing the Regents in August and said, "The reason I was able to graduate was because YOU helped me!" It gave me a good feeling knowing I was able to help them.
This product includes a copy of the prompt in a large-text format, a graphic organizer to help them arrange their ideas and structure their essay, and a "fill-in-the-blank" style template that shows them exactly how to write a text-based response essay based on ANY text.
