Our proven, cross-curricular writing model has been used by thousands of teachers and millions of students in K−12 classrooms for more than 25 years . . . long before the Common Core called for frequent, non-fiction writing in all subject areas.

STUDENT DIRECTIONS

You have read three texts describing Amelia Earhart. All three include the claim that Earhart was a brave, courageous person. The three texts are:
 
  • "Biography of Amelia Earhart"
  • "Earhart's Final Resting Place Believed Found"
  • "Amelia Earhart's Life and Disappearance"
Consider the argument each author uses to demonstrate Earhart's bravery.

Write an essay that analyzes the strength of the arguments about Earhart's bravery in at least two of the texts. Remember to use textual evidence to support your ideas.
