PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Common Core State Standards call on students to write arguments, informational/expository essays, and narratives, but do students know the differences between these types of writing?

This lesson plan takes an inquiry approach to build student understanding of the similarities and differences in the writing types. By having students engage with samples of each type of writing, they learn the differences, making a more lasting impact than if just told through a lecture format.

This lesson plan, designed to take approximately an hour, can be adapted for several grade levels by providing students grade-appropriate samples to explore. Students complete a comparison matrix, work in small teams to describe and distinguish between the forms, and ultimately gain an understanding of the organization and language used in each type of writing.

This includes the lesson plan and two handouts for student use. Teachers identify appropriate samples of each type of writing to supplement the materials provided for download with the purchase of the lesson plan.
