This research simulation task was written from the 6th grade practice PARCC assessment provided on-line for students to have a sample of what they need to do.
I had my students use the backwards by design approach here. In other words, they pulled out all techniques, elements, and evidence I used to write this essay in order to write their own.
Here is the exact question responded to:
You have read two texts and viewed one video that claim that the role of zoos is to protect animals. Write an essay that compares and contrasts the evidence each source uses to support this claim. Be sure to use evidence from all three sources to support your response.
Included in this Download:
- Sample RST Prose Constructed Response
- Brainstorming for the essay using a Source Organizer
- Research Simulation Task Outline/Structure Organizer
