PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

After presenting this PowerPoint lesson, teaching your students to improve their writing skills becomes a whole lot easier! This 24 slide PowerPoint is generally used as an introductory lesson for improving written expression by answering text dependent open- ended questions completely and correctly. It's a great way to prepare your students for answering Literary Analysis Tasks for standardized testing (PARCC).

This structured approach to writing is presented step by step in an easy to use format. Once students are able to understand the basic structure of this type of writing, they can easily springboard into improving their writing by not only answering the questions, but including literary devices, voice, humor, etc. It has helped both general education and special education students become fluent, creative writers. It gives them the tools they need to become self-starters. It is introduced early in the year, and practiced regularly, across content areas.

Students learn what is needed in the beginning, middle, and at the conclusion of any text dependent open-ended essay question response (Literary Analysis Task). Also included is an example of a completed, correct response written by a third grade student. Instruction was started in October, and the sample was completed in April. This sample was included to show how this method really does turn non-writers into great writers.

Students become proficient writers by practicing their skills throughout their school day. Use this format to integrate written expression not only during the writing period, but also when teaching health, science, and social studies. Teach your students that the ability to write across content areas is a necessary skill. With practice, they’ll be able to become inspired writers!

Two of the slides created in the PowerPoint serve as anchor charts to support instruction. The slides are enlarged on the poster maker, and displayed in the classroom as a resource. No poster maker? Simply add a copy of the two slides to students' writing folders.
