Narrative- 3 passages
Informative- 3 passages
Opinion- 3 passages
Reflecting back at my own students writing this year, I have noticed that my students still need practice in editing and revising their work. Once they finish writing, they think that’s it! They don’t have the skill to go back to reread and edit their writing several times.
I have created these paragraphs with each text type. Students have to revise, edit and add to each paragraph. Once they do that, they go back and identify each part of the text type by using the graphic organizer.
You guide students through all of the paragraphs. As they become proficient in revising, editing, and adding to the writing, you may use the passages in a writing center.
