PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Having already taught, and utilizing the skill of Unpacking / Flipping a Prompt, I used this activity in my classroom as a quick response / review activity prior to FSA Writing. Students number their papers 1-10, and write down their controlling idea statements. I would only give them a maximum o f 5 minutes for each prompt in order to identify the controlling idea.It is recommended that they take 3-5 minutes per slide. You can make this into a "speed game". This is in PowerPoint format. You could also use this as a "scoot" type of game, where you post the prompts around the room. The students number their papers 1-10 and respond, and are told to switch prompts within a certain time frame.

I have left this file editable.

For teaching how to understand a prompt, and write controlling statements, I am going to refer you to my product in my store titled "Flipping the Prompt".
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When beginning to write introduction paragraphs for informational prompted essays, students need to identify the topic and the point that the author is trying to make in the text.

Please note that the essays that they are expected to read as a reader are not included. These are just sample prompts to flip / rewrite into thesis statements / controlling ideas / main idea and point statements. These prompts provide practice for identifying the focus for their informative and opinion writings.

Benchmark:

Informative/Explanatory Writing: Creating a Controlling Idea Statement

LAFS.5.W.1.2a: Introduce a topic clearly and provide a general observation and focus, and group related information logically; include formatting (e.g., headings), illustrations, and multimedia when useful to aiding comprehension

This is one of many resources that I have created for my students to achieve FSA Reading & Writing goals. Please check out my store for additional activities.
