This is an introduction to Explanatory/Informative writing. It can be broken up into 4 different lessons or combined in any other combination to fit your class instruction time.
The document gives lessons using the ARBC acronym for beginning your Explanatory/Informative writing prompt
- attack the prompt
- read for it
- create a plan
Each section gives an objective and essential question, explanation, example, practice, and review. You will need your own writing prompt text to use in conjunction with this. Parts of the PowerPoint are editable to adjust it to your classroom's needs.
