Clustering is a writing exercise that taps into the creative, right hemisphere of the brain. It generates a "word palette" that allows students to create stories with greater ease and confidence.
Students will then be more engaged and open to learn grammar and language arts skills that apply to stories that they helped create.
This lesson plan takes approximately 45 minutes per session.
The lesson may be conducted several times to emphasize different CCSS components. (For example capitalization, punctuation, subject/verb agreement, etc.)
