You Oughta Know: Constructed Response Resources




            I'm joining Buzzing with Mrs. McClain for her monthly You Oughta Know blog hop. One of the biggest changes in Tennessee for the upcoming TN Ready assessments is the use of constructed response questions. Many of our students have not had nearly enough practice with this skill. So I've been searching high and low for resources to help my students. Here is what I have found out there. (All free of course)

Julie Faulkner created RACE Written Response Mnemonic Strategy Lesson & Evaluation Pack on TPT for free. I love using mnemonics to help my students remember.

MsHayden created a different mnemonic to answer constructed response questions.

We All Scream for Constructed Response
Lastly, Brenda Martin created this adorable We All Scream for Constructed Response resource for free on TPT.
