Writing: 3 Short Writing Ideas | Common Core Practice

Writing: 3 Short Writing Ideas | Common Core Practice | Middle School Argumentative writing | Scoop.it

Three writing prompts based on recent Times content, devised and tested by a ninth-grade class in New Jersey. 

 

Each Friday we collaborate with a classroom in New Jersey to test and publish three short writing ideas that address Common Core Standards and that are grounded in New York Times content.

This week, the teachers, Jonathan Olsen and Sarah Gross, and their ninth graders were just as taken with the following:

 

Narrative Writing - Dining: “As Not Seen On TV” Common Core Standards: RI2, RI4, RI5, RI6, RI10, W3, W4, W5, W10, RH4, RH5, RH8 Argumentative Writing - Editorial: “The Elite Eight, on the Federal Radar” Common Core Standards: RI2, RI6, RI8, RI10, W1, W4, W5, W9, W10, RH2 Argumentative Writing - Business: “Facebook’s False Faces” Common Core Standards: RI1, RI6, R18, RI10, W1, W4, W5, W10, RH2

Love these ideas! Teaching AP Language, I can see how I could easily incorporate and even expand upon these real world topics in the classroom.
