Ladies and gentlemen, let me share with you an awesome narrative paper written to the 2013 STAAR prompt.
We gave our students a benchmark back at the beginning of February, and their prompts were the released STAAR prompts from last year. One of my students wrote an AH-mazing paper about the simplest thing–getting a positive note home to her parents in her behavior folder from the teacher next door.
I thought this one was worth sharing. There are lots of lessons that can be taught using this piece, including vocabulary, idioms, and mostly–how to write long about a small moment or something that seems insignificant to most…something that makes the paper so incredibly interesting.
