STAAR/EOC Expository Prompt AND Sample Essay (Importance of Legacies)
STAAR/EOC EXPOSITORY PROMPT (9TH GRADE) I use this prompt alongside Fahrenheit 451. However, this could also be used as a standalone prompt. Students are asked to write an expository STAAR/EOC essay about why it is important to leave behind a legacy. Included in this bundle is a sample essay (written by me). I have my students analyze this essay and find the hook, thesis statement, methods of elaboration, etc. Buy this bundle and save instead of buying separately!
Creative Nonfiction Writing Unit -- Common Core, Journaling, Portfolio
This 9-week Creative Nonfiction writing unit is geared toward the upper levels of high school. I derived this unit from my own experience in the University of Iowa's prestigious writing courses. All the materials you would need to teach this unit can be found in the book "Tell it Slant" by Brenda Miller and Suzanne Paula. All of the short stories assigned in this unit can be found in that book, and many of them can be found online as well.
