Writing with a Purpose: Understanding ELA Common Core Writing Standard 4

Rating: 4 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: Edith Erickson (Teacher (K-12)), Apr 21, 2013

This StAIR is intended for high school use. It starts with a breakdown of the standard that the students are learning, which would be helpful for students in that they will learn the content better if they have a deeper understanding of what is expected. The presentation continues by explaning different aspects of the purpose an author can use for writing. After each section, the author includes a "Checkpoint" question, allowing for student interaction. While there is interaction and a few graphics, the tool is very text heavy and may be difficult for reluctant readers to stick with. 

Technical Remarks:

Students must be using a computer that can run a Google Drive Presentation.
