Product Description
Why Use Picture Books to Teach Extended Response Writing?

Preparing students to write extended response essays for state and other required tests can be very challenging. As with any other teaching, it is important for us to give students authentic tasks and materials. Using real literature/texts will increase student interest. Who wants to read passage after passage of photocopied test prep booklets? When students are presented with whole texts filled with color photos/illustrations, engagement naturally rises.

Writing about reading is a task students will be asked to do throughout their school careers and beyond. The English A.P. exam many students take in eleventh grade asks them to read passages and use information from those passages as evidence to support a claim. This resource does the same, while acknowledging that picture books are the appropriate texts for elementary students to begin to do this work.

Included in This Resource:

1. Lesson Suggestions
2. Page by page close reading questions to push deeper thinking of the text.
3. Graphic Organizer to help students organize thinking.
4. Pre-writing activity
5. “Parts of a Compare/Contrast Essay” chart
6. Two different extended response questions, one more challenging than the first.
7. Extended Response Rubric
