This comprehensive resource has 7 “children” or parts focused on writing open responses. The first is an excellent template for an open response reading comprehension graphic organizer. The next is an external link to the acronym READ – R-ead the question, E-xplain your answer, A-dd details and D-ouble check your work. The third document offers a “strategy” to ace an ELA document. The fourth and fifth (which are child resources that have already been reviewed) offer open response question and answer guidelines. The last two documents provide a scoring analysis of open response questions and the scoring of student work as well.
