This unit is a year long writing assessment that uses ONE writing that students revisit throughout the year.
The first piece students write is an extended metaphor using their senses. The pre-write flip book is included as a printable.
Students are assessed monthly (10 times) on how they use revision mini-lessons to improve the quality of their writing.
When students improve their skills as writers, then they will transfer those skills to narrative, expository, or any other writing purpose.
