Merit Question and Answer
MEAP writing test help



QUESTION:

Area of Concern: Process Writing
Submitted by: Teacher
Grade Level: Middle School
Competency: Below Level
My seventh graders took the MEAP test in the winter and scored very low in the writing section. I had been reviewing writing and essay techniques with them, but obviously I need to do more. I will have them again in the 8th grade and I want to make sure they have the writing skills they need in high school. Do you have any suggestions or ideas I can use to help my students with their writing?



ANSWER:

We've helped many middle school students improve their essay writing skills.

Our best programs for this purpose are Paragraph Punch and Essay Punch. In each program students choose from a menu of topics, develop an idea, and create their own original work. Students are guided through the complete writing process: pre-writing, writing, organizing, revising, editing and publishing.

With Paragraph Punch students learn to write a basic paragraph developed through reason, detail, example, sequence and cause and effect. Essay Punch helps students learn to write short persuasive, informative and descriptive essays.
