Here is a complete workshop for Grades 6-10 covering Writing Strand Standards 3 a-e.
Many of our children don't want to write. They think they can't do it. This product can help change their minds.
What is a child's favorite topic? Himself! You can help get those pens moving by using my 12 lesson plans, geared to bring out your students' creativity and higher level thinking skills. Once they get going, and they care about what they're saying, they'll be ready to make an investment in the mechanics.
This skill is particularly helpful in combining personal narrative with more academic text. Once a student can write a personal narrative in the present tense, he can strengthen his argument in the persuasive essay as well as hook his readers in the expository form.
But first, our children have to want to write. Good luck in your teaching adventure;I wish you and your students the very best.
