Teaching the 6 Writing Traits can be a long and arduous process for the teacher and students. It's easy to become overwhelmed with the scope of each trait. I have developed a comprehensive unit plan that will alleviate some of this stress for the teacher and make it more interesting for the students. I have integrated clips from "The Lego Movie" throughout the unit to peak students' interest and help the teachers provide visual concepts of the trait.
**Please know you will need to acquire "The Lego Movie" in order to use this unit plan in its entirety.
The unit includes:
- 6 lessons designed to teach a facet of either the Idea or Organization Trait
- Detailed instructions on how to use "The Lego Movie" to teach the trait
- A writing prompt with grading rubric
- Detailed lesson plans that explain how to use the product
** Please download the sample in order to get the best impression of the product :)
I am putting finishing touches on the Lego Writing Trait: Word Choice Unit! My favorite so far!
