Many teachers ask students to write a paragraph to answer a question. This is called a constructed response. You must make sure to answer the question on the test, not the one in your head. We are going to do a practice constructed response today. Please use CTRL C and CTRL V to copy and paste the part of the selection(the story they give you) into this form. In class, you can highlight the sentence or words you want to use, then copy it.

Open this PowerPoint to get step by step directions.
