Product Description
This ocean-themed unit will motivate (and organize) even the most reluctant of writers! The unit begins with an overview of the "FISCH" writing process: "Formulate a Topic" (choosing a genre), "Investigate the Topic" (setting, characters, voice, conflict,writing introductions and conclusions), "Survey/Shockwave" (self-edit/revise), "Collaborate" (peer sharing/editing), and "Herald!" (publishing). Hand-crafted graphic organizers enable students to plan their writing effectively through the use of the "Fish Tank" (setting graphic organizer), or the "Starfish" (character graphic organizer). Tip sheets are included for writing incredible introductions ("Reel "Em In!"), and clever conclusions ("Conch-lusions"). Peer editors will find the "Feeding Frenzy" checklist easy to use and effective, and teachers will enjoy using the "Great White" editing sheet and "Fish Market" rubric for evaluating students' work. All in all, a fun and effective way in which to teach the writing process!
