This chart lists over 80 possible minilessons about writing, organized by difficulty (easy, intermediate, advanced) and grouped by type (organizational, content-related, craft, etc.). Scaffold your writing instruction throughout the year by moving from easier to more difficult minilessons as the students progress. Make sure you are varying your mini-lessons, instead of focusing only on one type. Record the minilessons you've done already and plan for the future. This chart works well with the Writing Workshop Genre Chart, also available in my store.
