Looking for ways to help your students learn to write to text-based prompts?
This product includes two texts, plus three different prompts based on the texts (one narrative, one opinion, and one informational). It also includes an optional sorting activity where students can sort the different prompts into their genres as an assessment or just a practice activity.
See the preview for an idea of what is included.
Possible ways to use this product:
- Provide each student with the same prompt and use as an assessment or as an opportunity to guide students through the writing process.
- Provide some students with the opinion prompt, others with the informational prompt, and others with the narrative prompt. This provides a great opportunity for discussion about how people can write about the same topic in different ways.
- Use the genre-sorting activity to have students practice taking apart a prompt, identifying what it is asking for, and deciding on the genre of writing.
