PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Teaching students to write to text-based prompts requires instructional shifts. Use this power point to teach your middle school students a 5-step process to help them successful on the Florida Standards Assessment (FSA) Informational Text-based Writing Prompt. Can also be used to teach text-based writing for any standardized test situation. The example given is based on a 8th grade level text (included), but the power point can also be used as a template for teaching text-based writing for informational text-based prompts using the passages you choose--just change the examples to match your selected text!

This product will help students avoid these common problems when writing to text-based prompts:

1. Not understanding the prompt---some student write entire pages that do not address the prompt.
2. Reading and annotating--students tent to underline or highlight EVERYTHING or NOTHING!
3. Planning--students use their planning page as a first draft, or most do not plan at all!
4. Accidental (or purposeful) plagiarism--students copy parts of the text without correct citation and without explaining in their own words.
5. Relying on background knowledge--students do not use textual evidence at all.
