#DistanceLearningTpT This product is perfect for those of you doing distance/remote learning due to school closures!

This a document I created because I felt there was a lack of material out there to assist teachers with the writing tasks for the PARCC. It is geared toward 6th grade, but can be used for upper elementary or middle school.

This is basically 2 weeks, or more, of lessons PLUS samples essay YOU don't have to write for $13!
