This is an informative writing prompt that should be used to prepare students for the FSA or other standardized writing assessments. It includes three sources; One source is about Barack Obama, one source is about George Washington, and one source is about Abraham Lincoln. The writing prompt asks students to compare and contrast two of the presidents they read about. Therefore one paragraph might be about how they are the same and one paragraph would be about how they are different OR one paragraph could be about one president and one about a different president, as long as there is comparing and contrasting information between the two. The wording of the prompt and passages is similar to that on the FSA.
