PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

When I think of language arts final exams, the first thing that comes to mind is the sound of students groaning when they realize they actually have to WRITE responses. Believe it or not, the world doesn't function on multiple choice questions (wait, what??)!

Constructed response questions are tough, especially for students who already struggle with writing. The S(PiCE)S model for answering constructed response questions takes some of the guess-work out for students. In essence, it is a formula for consistently creating constructed response answers that hit all of the marks.

This resource pack includes a Prezi presentation for direct instruction, a guided handout for students to complete during the lesson, two writing prompts for students and activities to analyze their writing, a template for the S(PiCE)S method, and teacher instructions for the lesson. Three sample prompts for pieces of literature are included (Mark Twain, Ambrose Bierce, and William Wordsworth).

The best thing about this method is that it can be easily adapted to fit any type of constructed response question. While I created this specifically for my state's test, you can change it up to meet your needs. Furthermore, it can be adapted to fit the specifications for SAT and ACT essays.

This zip file is quite large due to the Prezi presentation. Please let me know if you have any trouble downloading it!
