The ELA Common Core State Standards focus on students’ ability to read carefully and grasp information, arguments, ideas, and details based on evidence in the text. This resource can help your students practice text-based writing or prepare for standardized test success!
Included, are *SIXTEEN* units of paired passages and prompts. Each unit contains a text stimuli designed for students to analyze ideas/evidence and synthesize the information in a written essay response.
Units contains multiple sources of information on a single topic, a writing prompt, a planning sheet, and lined writing pages to respond. Please differentiate to support your own instructional preferences and individual student needs!
Please note -- since students will be required to demonstrate synthesis and analysis of complex ideas or themes in their writing, I have bundled a wide range of units consisting of different genres/text measures. The goal of this is to provide flexible options for classroom instruction and(or) multiple opportunities for student practice.
