This walks you as a teacher and the students through how to construct a great open ended response. To use the power point, you will need chart paper and 3 colored markers as well as the story 'The True Story of The Three Little Pigs". I use the ABC method, I don't care about all the standardized test rubrics, because I feel like if they can use the ABC method (answer, back it up, connect) then they will get a nice grade regardless, so I don't confuse them with fancy rubrics. The power point will have you as a class write an open ended response together and at the end, there are also 3 examples of scored responses (a low scoring, mid scoring, and high scoring) as well as teacher notes. This is helpful to students I believe. Additionally, there is a story you can print for them and a practice open ended question for them to try on their own. There is an ABC reminder page too you can print for them to keep as well as a great constructed open ended response example. The example does not go with any story, it is just an example for them to see all the parts of a well constructed open ended.
