Great for reading, science, and social studies!
Writing short or extended answers is a skill many students must display when they take state proficiency tests. Students begin these tests as early as kindergarten, but the ability to understand a question and answer it clearly will last a lifetime.
When students go into a testing situation, they are often nervous. Having a structure (a wheel) to use in the tests will give them confidence.
Students will be able to do the following:
* brainstorm using a graphic organizer (wheel)
* write a well-developed answer using complete sentences
* proofread their work
* use a rubric to evaluate their work
The 13-page PDF contains the following:
* step-by-step instructions
* handouts that explain the writing process
* scoring rubric for writing assignments
Materials align to the Common Core standards.
