Paragraph/Section: ELA Grade 8 Book 2, Section 3 -Paper Testing Writing Prompt Directions when turning to the Planning Pages.


Brief Description:

In ELA Grade 8 Book 2, Section 3 – Paper Testing, the TAM script directs the students to turn to the Planning Pages to read the directions. The exact planning page number depends on if a student is taking an operational test, large print test, or breach test. When taking the OSTP ELA Grade 8 section 3 operational paper-based test, the planning pages begin on page 12. When taking a large print paper-based test, the planning pages begin on page 8. When taking a breach paper-based test, the planning pages being on page 10.

(Read for Breach.) Turn to page 10 to see the Planning Pages. Look at the directions below the Writing topic and follow along as I read them aloud.
