On-Demand Prompt Hints

Thanks to all of you for your efforts to support student writing. Here is the electronic link to a Narrative Writing Prompt site As with anything outside resource- some parts are better than others. ;)

Couple of reminders when writing prompts for the K-PREP on-demand style-per the released info. and samples:

The SITUATION is more developed- it offers much more context for the student to use than in the past

States the MODE and offer a FORM- Write a narrative for a blog...Write your opinion in an email...

States audience-which will determine the tone

Narrative can be REAL or IMAGINED

INFORMATIVE-(for this year) is about reading info. from a passage(s) and synthesizing it to craft an informative or explanatory piece- "Just the facts, ma'am. Just the facts." is our motto. :)

Stand-alone (30 min. & 2 blank pg); Passage-based (90 min. and 4 blank pgs.)

1 blank page for pre-write

Thesis Statement -the focal point, opinion, thru-line of the piece/ truism or lesson learned for narrative

Models are available.

Please let me know how else I can support you. I will pass along other sites and info as I get it.
