Are you looking for a way to bridge STAAR with the novel House of Scorpion? In this document are a total of 6 STAAR styled prompts. There are 4 persuasive prompts and 2 expository prompts.
There is a quote box includes a quote from House of Scorpion, a thinking statement, and the prompt. I will be using this with advanced and regular English classes in a Texas public school. This prompt could still be used even if your students have not read House of Scorpion.
