Critical Thinking in Writing for 2nd and 3rd graders

Grade Levels
PDF (643 KB)


This lesson plan is one I created while pursuing my Literacy degree at University. It utilizes the 'questioning strategy' to foster critical thinking skills. It also teaches pupils how to brainstorm and how to use story mapping in preparation for writing.

This plan is suitable for second and third graders; however, it may be adapted to cater to students of a higher grade level.

My pupils enjoyed this lesson and I am confident that yours will also. Enjoy!
