With this end-of-unit written assessment, your students will not only be able to synthesize all they've learned about the Old and New Stone Ages, but they'll also gain valuable practice with persuasive writing and the business letter format (your grade-level ELA teacher/s will be thanking you!).
This document includes an area for students to outline, as well as to compose a rough draft. Additionally, it includes helpful transition words and a guide to composing a business letter. Students should either type their final drafts or write them on white-lined paper. In the past, I've used this assignment as an assessment grade.
