PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Finding quality revising and editing passages is a chore! This passage about the history of bubble gum makes your job easy. It contains an original informational text and 7 questions that assess how your students revise for controlling ideas and supporting details. This can be used as a formative assessment or a teaching tool. It is aligned with the 2015 released STAAR Revising and Editing test.

Tip: Play Slap-Down in groups of four! Students take the assessment first. Then, each student cuts/tears a sheet of paper into four squares, writing A, B, C or D on separate cards. You then tell them to “get ready to slap down” on the count of 3. They pick their answer, such as B, and slap it down on the table at the same time. Students can discuss why correct answers are correct and why certain answers are incorrect.
