This is a graphic organizer that can be used for short answer writing responses. I use this to help teach my students how to write short answer STAAR test questions. It could be useful for other short answer standardized test questions as well such as common core. STAAR is just what Texas uses.
ACE is a method for short answer writing. It asks students to answer the question, cite evidence from the text, and explain how the evidence proves the answer.
Included is an outline / graphic organizer using ACE that can be used on any short answer writing question. It explains how to use ACE on the graphic organizer. I also included an example question and answer that can be used to teach this method to students.
In addition to the graphic organizer I included line paper. There are two versions of the lined paper: 6 lines and 10 lines. The Texas STAAR English test uses 10 lines for the short answer response.
I am happy to customize it for your needs including changing the line length to match your standardized test. Just send me a message :)
