I use the acronym listed in the title to teach the kids how to write expository essays.
TEKS: 4.15C, 4.18Aii, 4.18Ai, 4.18Aiii
This teaching method is a great way to get them to write a well-organized expository essay without sounding formulaic.
I have used this method for 2 years, and I have gotten great results on the STAAR test.
Included is the explanation planning sheet with a sample expository prompt (one of the more difficult ones). Also included is a blank printable planning sheet for your students to use until they memorize the planning sheet. I included an official prompt page and 26-line paper so the students can have the full experience of STAAR writing.
