Dollars and Dentists (Informational Writing for the Resource English Classroom)
This is a writing assignment designed specifically for the special education setting. It involves having the students watch a high-interest video with teacher supported discussion. Students will use the information from the video along with three informational articles that they read. One article is provided for them. They need to find two articles on their own and read them. There are no citation requirements for this paper, however, that could easily be added.
This could easily be modified for the general education classroom adding the following Standards: RI5, RI6, RI7, W4, W7, and W8.
