TEXT

"DEADLY, OR NOT" is a nonfiction ARTICLE ABOUT piranhas. Piranhas have a seemingly random way of attacking that is now quite well-researched. This article debugs some of the piranha legend, but asks students to come up with their own opinion.

WRITING PROMPTS focus on WRITING COMPLETE, WELL-SUPPORTED PARAGRAPHS:

  • topic sentence
  • evidence
  • elaboration
  • transitions
  • conclusion

This article has multiple choice questions, a WRITING PROMPT and SAMPLE PARAGRAPH RESPONSE. Students use information from the TEXT to answer questions.

………………………………………………

RESPONDING TO THE PROMPT means students either
