This product is perfect for a variety of classroom scenarios. You could use this activity to practice essay writing and providing textual evidence. It could also be used as a sub plan or state test review.
This product contains both a PDF and Word Document. The activity requires the students to read two articles about cheating in schools. There is a link provided to the articles. After reading the articles, the students are then asked to respond in writing to the provided question. The essay prompt asks for textual evidence as well as a counterclaim.
There is a provided rubric that can be edited as needed.
If you like this product please check my store later this summer for more paired text writing assignments, and as always, if you have questions please let me know. Thanks!
