PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Introduction to the RST

This is an 18 page resource that introduces the PARCC research simulation task through a higher interest topic - a zombie apocalypse!

The resource is broken down as follows:
* 1 page introduction to the test task and formatting
* 2 - 6 a sample writing task and three sources
* 7 - 12 initial brainstorming work and writing instruction with examples
* 13 - 18 additional sources to use in replacement of the original three should you prefer to lower or raise the reading complexity.

The initial brainstorm writing is a graphic organizer - one blank and another complete for demonstration.

The writing instruction breaks down the expectations of a thesis, introductory paragraph, supporting paragraphs, and conclusion with a list of requirements and sample paragraphs that use color coding to show the alignment to the list.

Material is great as an introductory lesson, a class work activity on a screen or overhead, a diagnostic, or independent assessment.

Skills are PARCC and common core aligned. This activity is an appropriate introduction to DBQ writing as well. Ideal for language arts or history classes.
