Ways to use this resource!
In my classroom, I use this resource as weekly writing homework. I usually align the genre I use with what I am teaching in class. Once I've taught all 3 genres, I rotate the remainder of the year. As the year progresses, I require my students to incorporate the strategies I have taught them, into their paragraph homework.
