My district currently uses the "Empowering Writers" curriculum for writing. Most of the focus of the year is on narrative and expository writing. When my students are beginning to write an expository piece, they often forget the organization and the components that they need to include. I've found these easy to print pillars to be incredibly helpful. After a student has finished their writing, I always tell them to take a Expository Post-It note and check to make they included the all the components before turning in their assignment. The quality of my students' expository pieces has improved since using these!
This product contains the directions for printing on Post-It notes, a blank template, and my Expository Writing template. Enjoy!
