PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Included in this low-prep time download are 2 passages, followed by 20 editing and revising multiple choice questions. A FREE PowerPoint presentation features the test-like questions and transforms the resource from a typical “practice test” into an engaging WRITING CAMP activity, GUIDED PRACTICE, or RETEACH. Each animated frame of the PowerPoint covers the answer choices, revealing the correct answer and rationale. An answer document is also included. Listen for that collective “Yes!” as the correct answers are revealed on the PowerPoint.

The passages and assessment question mimic the released 2015 STAAR.
