Over the next week we will be practicing our writing techniques. Remember that there are 3 types of prompts that can be asked on TN Ready; Explanatory, where you explain something in detail, Narrative, where you tell an entertaining story using dialogue, or Opinion, where you state your claim about a topic.
This file is a practice question from TN Ready involving an explanatory text. Remember our strategies; read the PROMPT in the back FIRST so you know what to look for when you read the texts. Then, read the questions. Finally, read both texts. It is important to highlight the text evidence you want to use in your writing as you read the texts. This way, when you begin writing you know exactly where your text evidence is.
