PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

"Start Now!"

Begin the school year with small increments of this type of writing; at least once a month.

Great product to begin review or prep for State testing. Use the month of January to brush up on writing skills you have been teaching all year long. Activities are described for whole class,individual students, groups and pairs of students. Practice is key, along with using student sample activities.

Product does not contain whistles and bells and gizmos.

Product contains:
Calendar for January's suggested daily work
Student Check Up questions
5 persuasive prompts and 5 argumentative prompts
Venn Diagram of comparisons and contrasts
Posters for persuasive writing
Three sample writings [one complete, 2 others partially developed]
Template for practice work
Chart for analyzing informational article

It takes a variety of approaches to bring students to a level of mastery; practice and model pieces are just some of those approaches.

Follow the daily ideas or pick and choose what works best for you.

Last, the teacher can create art activities to go along with these activities. Whether the anchor charts students create are decorated or illustrated, or made into a story board, they will benefit from writing what they understand to be effect writing in and of itself from the variety of prompts given. Once these anchor charts have been created invite students to participate in a "gallery walk." Students should feel free to place post-it notes along side of these anchor charts with respectful remarks.

Enjoy!

PS. There is no need to stress out over grading. Instead, alternate scoring only an introduction for each piece that has been submitted, or only the 1st body paragraph, etc, or only the conclusion, or only the counterclaims, etc.

An option to consider is:
The most valuable experience is for students to work for an entire piece in a simulated timed setting. After 8 different pieces have been written within a month's time, invite the student to select a single ONE paper he/she wants fully scored.
In this way, students still write on a regular basis, you the teacher assesses select aspects of their writing, a final piece is fully scored holistically, and the task becomes manageable.

There are many, many ways to manage grading that at times can overwhelm language arts teachers; scoring a portion of a fully developed piece is one way to selectively assess papers.
