Informative Paragraph Pre-Assessment: What Is One Reason You Want the Power of Reading?

This Informative Paragraph Pre-Assessment: What Is One Reason You Want the Power of Reading? lesson plan also includes:

This writing pre-assessment has minimal instruction but maximum support and encouragement. It begins with a review of the book, Rain School, through a think-pair-share and small group discussion. The discussion focuses on the idea that reading is powerful, and learners explore why they want to have that power. Class members take the knowledge gained in the discussion and compose an authentic writing sample. This is a great way to create a baseline writing sample that can be used as a snapshot of ability at the beginning of the year, as well as to assess progress when shown alongside later writing samples.
