PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Paired texts address advanced reading comprehension skills. Students read two texts and respond to a prompt that was given based on the two related texts.

This 40-slide Paired Texts PowerPoint is designed to keep your students engaged and attentive as they learn how to respond to a paired text prompt! It contains a 10-page PowerPoint companion handout. Students write on the handout, recording their answers, as you advance through the PowerPoint.

The PowerPoint contains the following format:

Slides 1-2: Cover and Introduction

Slides 3-11: Prompt #1: Comparing and Contrasting a Fiction and Nonfiction Passage (Three example student responses are presented for students to analyze to determine whether the response is strong or weak.)

Slides 12-18: Prompt #2: Comparing and Contrasting 2 Fiction Passages (Setting, Theme, and Events) (Students will write their own essay response, and then analyze two student example responses.)

Slides 19-24: Prompt #3: Writing an explanatory response after reading 2 nonfiction texts related to Harriet Tubman (A nonfiction paired text model is presented. Students can watch as all of the steps are presented.)

Slides 25-32: Prompt #4: Writing a response that requires a clear position statement after reading a fiction and nonfiction passage related to one-room schools (Students will write their own essay response, and then analyze two student example responses.)

Slides 33-39: Prompt #5: Writing a persuasive response after reading 2 texts related to cell phone usage (Students will write their own essay response, and then analyze two student example responses.)

Slides 40-41: Credits (Events)


BE SURE TO CHECK OUT THE PREVIEW!!!

This PowerPoint was created to help prepare upper elementary and middle school students for writing tests in which they have to read paired passages and write a response. I intend to cover 1 passage each day, so this PowerPoint can be used every day for 1 week.
