This is a paired passage set and informational/explanatory prompt designed to help students prepare for any CCSS writing assessment. There are three text sources relating to the same topic, a writing prompt (opinion), a planning sheet, and blank lined writing pages that are similar to what students will see on the assessment.
You can use this set for instructional purposes, as a mock writing test, or for students who are in need of additional practice. Please note that the subject matter of these passages are intended to be high interest topics for increased student engagement.
