Directions for Lesson:
1. Study George Washington and Abraham Lincoln- read several books, watch videos, and discuss each president in detail. Students fill in Prewriting Maps to take notes on both or just one of the presidents (teacher discretion). They will choose only one to write on.
2. Students choose George Washington or Abraham Lincoln to write about.
3. Students will complete a 2nd Prewriting Map to describe the president that they chose. For each character trait or describing word that students decide to write in their bubbles they must provide evidence or support using the evidence boxes on their Prewriting Maps (#2).
4. Students will write an opening and closing sentence on their 2nd Prewriting Map. The opening should give a brief description of who the president is. The closing should be a reflection or connection that the student makes.
5. Students draft their paragraphs.
6. Take the paragraph through the writing process.
7. Share the finished product! My class loves sharing their writing during “Author’s Chair” where they sit in my special chair and read their writing to the rest of the class. 

Enjoy and please leave feedback! :)
