An Expository "How To" Essay Lesson. I hope you enjoy this fun and whimsical Favorite Dessert writing lesson. It takes the students through the writing process and encourages them to use adjectives and adverbs to make elaborate sentences.
The lesson includes:
1. brainstorming- write down 3 desserts and choose 1
2.Draw it-Draw and color the dessert adding details and labels
3.Organizer-organize the recipe
4.Elaboration-list adjectives and adverbs that can be used in the essay
5. Cover sheet and final draft paper
I use this format to help my students prepare to write the expository essay on the Texas STAAR test. It would be a great lesson for any writing teacher to help prepare their students for the writing portion of their state exam.
