This is the 16th lesson in The Art of Information Writing unit of study, written by Lucy Calkins and M. Colleen Cruz. I am currently working on the entire unit. Once bends 3 and 4 are finished I will bundle them, so if you can wait it is cheaper. Bends 1&2 are now available as a bundle. These lessons are not meant to replace the lessons in the guide; it is important to read those because they give a more detailed picture of how the workshop may go. This is for teachers like me who are using the program and still need a formal lesson plan written up. This lesson includes all components, including the common core standards, and teaching aids to use during the lesson. You can modify to accommodate your teaching style, and your students’ needs. The mid workshop teaching point is included, but can be done as a separate lesson the next day.
