Product Description
This resource was designed to prep your students for their State Testing in Writing. This particular product addresses Informational Writing. This resources comes packed with several resources for you and your students to find success on this test!

This resource has two paired passages that ask students to compare and contrast the voyages of explorers Sir Francis Drake and Ferdinand Magellan.


Writing Checklist
Students can check their work against a template that contains the basic tenants of writing. Many, if not all, of these skills will be assessed on your state’s writing assessment. I have provided a student self-assessment and a teacher rating column.

Prompts & Passages
With Common Core in mind, this product was designed so that students would have to use two different sources to answer questions. In the United States, this is common practice during state testing. The prompts are set up to look similar to state testing formats.

Writing Templates
For many students that struggle with writing, practicing a framework for writing is often helpful for them in terms of achieving proficiency on a state assessment. I have developed templates that allow you, the teacher, to scaffold instruction for your learners. This template guides students to write using a formulaic response that will help boost their score on state assessments! I pull one of the paragraphs away each day until students have the overall design and sentence starters memorized.

Writing Paper
I have included lined paper for you to use with your students. I do strongly recommend, however, that if your students will be taking the assessment online, they should type out their response instead. You can easily plug these passages into LMS systems like Google Classroom, Canvas, etc. I also recommend the use of Edcite, as it mimics many state assessment formats!

**PLEASE NOTE: This resource was designed with Ohio's State Tests (AIR) in mind. However, many states have the same, or similar, requirements for their Writing tests.
