These five lesson plans guide students through the process of brainstorming Writing Seeds to be utilized for authentic, detailed writing throughout the year. They work especially well at the beginning of the school year to help students establish their writing passions! Each lesson provides the learning process for one type of Writing Seed. The Seeds include Unforgettable Moments, Fierce Questions, Writing Small, Using Observations, and Making Lists. Each lesson plan includes an objective, essential question, key quote from a writing expert, detailed hook, specific discussion questions, mini-lesson procedures with examples, shared practice instructions, and independent practice procedures.
