This is a pdf of a graphic organizer and editing checklist used for Expository Writing.
This is the exact graphic organizer I have been using for years in my class. I use it for informational writing and have used it across different subjects in our curriculum.
The editing checklists shows an exact formula of what should be included in each paragraph of a five-paragraph expository essay. It can be used by the students who wrote the essay, during peer editing, and by the teacher in the editing phase. There are different versions of the checklist, and one has three columns of check boxes so it can be used by the student writer, peer editor, and the teacher.
I have an Expository Writing PowerPoint
in my store that goes right along with this. It is not needed to use the graphic organizer and checklist, but it makes a nice enhancement to your lesson and can be printed out for a writing bulletin board.
