ATTENTION! WRITING TESTING IS COMING UP!!
Every year around this time, I find myself focusing an enormous amount of energy teaching my students informative writing. I created this product to help me more effectively, and easily, teach my students how to write informative and persuasive essays.
The purpose of this product is to improve students' writing by using this guide to take them step-by-step through the writing process - from prompt to final draft. Furthermore, it can be used with any prompt assigned by you, the teacher.
Writing is perhaps one of the hardest subjects to teach because it requires so much differentiation and formative assessment. Incorporating this product into your existing writing routine acts as a teaching aid, reinforcing the writing process so that you have more freedom to reach struggling writers and challenge advanced writers.
This product includes the following sections:
UNDERSTANDING THE PROMPT
RESEARCHING THE TOPIC
DEVELOPING A THESIS
STARTING YOUR ESSAY
WRITING YOUR ESSAY
INFORMATIVE WRITING RUBRIC
