PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Starting your expository writing unit? Add this Interactive Notebook to your instruction to ensure students have the background knowledge needed BEFORE they begin to write expository text.

Before I have my students write expository text, I teach them the text structures and features found in expository text. Once they understand these components, they are ready to write their own expository piece.
