Description

Intermediate and middle-grade classrooms are moving toward accountability tests that focus on On-Demand writing. It’s important that our students be able to quickly and effectively communicate through their writing. This means students are developing their writing ideas, responding to a prompt, structuring their thinking, support their thinking with reasons and evidence, and communicating a claim.

In this resource, you’ll find prompts {narrative, inform/explain, opinion} that give students practice reading and responding to prompts. I’ve included sample anchor charts (in color and black/white), 15 total practice prompts, as well as, information about and resources to teach SPAM/SPAT – a strategy for analyzing writing prompts.
