Product Description
With the shift to Common Core and an emphasis on teaching students expository writing, these five mini-writing lessons will be all you need to get your high school students to write confidently and deliberately. Each writing lesson has a different focus but includes a fact vs. fiction introduction, tips on how to get started, things to avoid, and a practice assignment/assessment (open-ended for cross-curricular work). These lessons were inspired by the book "They Say, I Say" by Graff and Berkenstein.

Introduction: View writing as entering a conversation!
Lesson #1 Composing a true expository summary: Writing template and writing stems provided for students along with a SOAPStone worksheet and article to respond to.
Lesson #2 Quotes for Support: How to find balance in using quotes without damaging the writer's credibility.
Lesson #3 Finding Your Voice: Encourages students to find their unique writer's voice while still maintaining an academic tone.
Lesson #4 Writing in Science: Cross-curricular connections with data analysis and creating an argument.
Lesson #5 Writing in History: Cross-curricular connections with conducting a literature review and presenting your own analysis.
