A knowledge and skills statement is a broad statement of what students must know and be able to do. It generally begins with a learning strand and ends with the phrase “The student is expected to:” Knowledge and skills statements always include related student expectations.
Consider pairing SE 6.7.F with 6.7.H and assess both SEs at the same time. With SE 6.7.F, students respond using newly acquired vocabulary. After reading a text, engage students in a group discussion regarding new vocabulary learned in the text. As students respond, remind them to use appropriate register, tone and voice.
This SE requires students to effectively communicate their ideas. Ample opportunities should be provided for students to refine their response skills both orally and in writing.

Summary: Two studies were designed to examine the use of persuasive quick write responses with seventh-grade students with disabilities In both studies, the written responses of the students were evaluated before, during, and after students developed their personal strategy to address the quick response. Two strategies were used by the students: POW: pick my idea, organize my notes, write and say more; TREE: topic sentence, reasons—three or more, explain, and ending. All students improved in their ability to create a strong persuasive response after a few weeks of instruction and practice.
