I thought about that, but my students live in the inner city and most of them haven’t ventured to anywhere that would get wildfires. Thanks though!
Calling Read 180 Teachers
I teach 6th Grade Read 180 and I am planning the writing portion of Workshop 2 “When Disaster Strikes.” I want to make the Writing Segment more aligned with Common Core and more relevant to my students. The recommended prompt is to write about a time when you experienced extreme weather. I live in Southern California and my students have never experienced extreme weather (not even a major earthquake). Have any of you tweaked the prompt for your students? Or can anyone point me in the direction of some useful resources? Thank you!
