PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

CLASSROOM TESTED!

Challenge your students' experience with expository text with this Mini Magazine! Get even your most reluctant writers to write with gusto!

Students generate a topic of choice to write about throughout the duration of the unit.The Mini Magazine Unit requires that students read expository text from varying text structures and then replicate it in their own writing.

Students write through the following text structures and genres:
- description
- cause and effect
- problem and solution
- sequence
- compare and contrast
- argumentative writing
- narrative writing

*****This project challenges students in a motivating way, giving them control over their topic. ******

An example is provided for each text structure and genre - written on the topic of brussels sprouts (notoriously unpopular with middle schoolers and therefore unlikely to be chosen!). Teachers model completion of the graphic organizer with a class topic. Then, the teacher models the writing or uses the example. Finally students complete a "rough draft" on their own copy. A final draft would be completed in whichever way you choose (digital or hard copy).

Since no two classrooms are exactly the same, the packet is designed to be customizable. The Cover Page and the Task/Rubric are in both PDF and Microsoft Word, so that you can add or remove tasks.
