  • 1. TAKS Open-Ended Response aka OER This “A-B-C” Strategy Can help you go W.Y.L.D!
  • 2. What the OER tests
    • The OER is NOT a WRITING test…
    • The OER IS a READING test!
    • It tests your ability to understand what you read…
    • … to analyze the content, and respond with clear thinking to the READING PROMPT you are given.
  • 3. Close Reading — What It Is
    • CLOSE READING is like looking at the text through a microscope .
    • When you look at something through a microscope, you notice things you didn’t notice at first glance .
    • You look beyond the obvious …
    • You see in finer detail …
    • You “ read between the lines ”…
    • You see not only what the author literally has to say…
    • You see the meaning the author psychologically wants to convey.
  • 4.
    • Read each question carefully before you draft your response.
    • Use the A-B-C method to stay on track.
    • A – Answer the question
    • B – Bring in a quote
    • C – make an insightful Connection
    • The first sentence of your response should clearly A — Answer the question…
  • 5.
    • After you have answered the question, the rest of your response should explain and support your answer.
    • Be sure to include a quote from the selection that enhances your answer .
    • Any old quote won’t do; the quote you use must support and/or explain your point.
    • (Include a quote from both selections in the 3 rd question)
    • If you are asked to discuss a change in a character, be sure to mention how the character was BEFORE and AFTER the change.
  • 6.
    • Do not waste the space that you have.
    • PREWRITE in the space provided in your test booklet.
    • Smoothly blend the portion of the quote that you need to make your point into your response.
    • Do not cite the quotation.
    • Do not skip lines.
    • Do not write outside the box.
  • 7. Ready to A-B-C?
    • Let’s respond to a prompt from Elie Wiesel’s Night together…
  • 8. Sample Question
    • Why did Moshe the Beadle stay in Sighet when the people would not listen to him?
  • 9. Sample Response
    • Moshe the Beadle stayed in Sighet because he continued to want to save the people from the dangers he knew were coming. "I wanted to come back to Sighet…” Moshe said, “…so that you could prepare yourselves while there was still time…And see how it is, no one will listen to me..." Moshe loved the the Jews enough to risk his own life again by coming back to warn them.
  • 10. Remember: A-B-C
    • A - Answer the question…
    • The question was: “Why did Moshe the Beadle stay in Sighet when the people would not listen to him?”
    • So you say something like…“ Moshe the Beadle stayed in Sighet because
    • he continued to want to save the people from the dangers he knew were coming.”
  • 11. Remember: A-B-C
    • B - Bring in a quote …
    • Include only the parts of the quote that are useful to support your point.
    • Here’s an example:
    • "I wanted to come back to Sighet…” Moshe said, “…so that you could prepare yourselves while there was still time…And see how it is, no one will listen to me..."
  • 12. Remember: A-B-C
    • Here’s the whole quote …
    • "I wanted to come back to Sighet to tell you the story of my death. So that you could prepare yourselves while there was still time. To live? I don't attach any importance to my life any more. I'm alone. No, I wanted to come back, and to warn you. And see how it is, no one will listen to me...."
  • 13. Remember: A-B-C
    • C — Make an insightful connection …
    • Explain briefly why this quote is a good one.
    • For example:
    • “ Moshe loved the the Jews enough to risk his own life again by coming back to warn them.”
  • 14. Remember: A-B-C
    • Here’s the whole thing again:
    • A — Answer the question
    • Moshe the Beadle stayed in Sighet because he continued to want to save the people from the dangers he knew were coming.
    • B — Bring in a quote
      • "I wanted to come back to Sighet…” Moshe said, “…so that you could prepare yourselves while there was still time…And see how it is, no one will listen to me..."
    • C — Make an insightful connection
      • Moshe loved the the Jews enough to risk his own life again by coming back to warn them.
    • For example:
    • “ Moshe loved the the Jews enough to risk his own life again by coming back to warn them.”
