The following Graphic Organizer allows students to break down a prompt, regardless of which type of writing they are asked to complete. Students have the ability to reference the title, determine the task, and write down any important information in which they must include in order to achieve the highest score according to the PARCC rubric. Once students master using this organizer, because of its easy organization (lines, and boxes) students can begin to draw it on their own. This product is one in which you can easily scaffold so that IEP scholars have pieces filled in when being introduced, general education students complete it on their own with guided practice, and gifted scholars are able to draw it on their own. Eventually, all students can draw this easily on scrap paper provided on assessments. The goal is for all students to understand the thinking process associated with breaking down writing prompts in order to better understand the task.
