This Powerpoint is very helpful for anyone who is introducing informational writing to their class. It goes through each important aspect of informational writing and is directly correlated to Indiana standards. It also follows Common Core Standards. This could be used as one longer whole group lesson or presented as several mini-lessons.
Please look at my page for the free download that goes with this PowerPoint! It is a notes page for students to use while you present. This will ensure they are actively engaged during the presentation. It will also provide them with all of the helpful information from the PowerPoint once they are working on their writing independently!
