This unit was planned from First Steps 1st and 2nd Edition. This is an 8 page detailed term planner to teach the text type exposition or persuasive text. It is based on the idea that students need lots of explicit teaching first, they need to view several versions of the text and then they are supported and scaffolded to write their own text type more independently. The term “Exposition” was taken from the 1st edition and the term “Persuasive Text” was taken from the 2nd edition. For the purposes of this plan, both terms are meant to mean the same thing and should be thought of as the same text type.
