Product Description
Do your students need help writing an essay in 45 minutes or less? (Need test prep help, or want to prepare them for future grade levels and tasks?)

Use this lesson and writing practice set to break down the process of a timed essay and build confidence before the next test or writing task. This download helps students who have never done a timed writing OR can be used with older students who may have mixed abilities/experience.

(The best part? You can either use my provided prompts OR insert your own prompts, so you can use this mini-unit concurrently with whatever unrelated topic you’re teaching!)

Depending on your students’ skill levels and how much time you have, there are three versions of this mini-unit included:
• 2 Days: Lesson and one in-class essay
• 3 Days: Practice/pre-assessment essay, lesson, and the “real” essay
• 5 Days: Practice/pre-assessment essay, lesson, two rounds of real essays, and a compare/contrast reflection activity to self-assess the three completed essays
• (Bonus activities if you wish to fill more days – see below!)

This 37-page/slide download also includes:
• Rubric (similar to ACT/SAT*) that includes room for self-assessment, peer assessment, and teacher feedback
• Teacher directions for the mini-unit
• Optional prompts to use
• Bonus revision activity
• Bonus group essay activity
• Optional cover page (if you wish to make a cute packet!)
• Editable and PDF versions of all documents, so you can customize it to a specific test OR for your grade level

*These lessons are not JUST for the ACT/SAT, but everything said in this unit DOES work for those tests!

NOTE: This unit is INCLUDED in my Essay Mega Bundle! Check it out to save 20% on all of my current and future essay items!
