A step-by-step guide for your students to create an excellent Informative/Research Essay! This packet has all the main components in an informative essay in it!
This product is what I use to progressively teach the components of an informative essay. Each step can be used as a mini-lesson, with teacher examples and student brainstorming. When students complete a step, I move on to the next step and guide them through the writing process. You can use the examples I have given in the guide or create your own topic to model for your students.
One thing I love about this guide is that it keeps all of their pre-writing together, and most everything you need is in this packet.
To accommodate standards, you would have to incorporate a mini-lesson on finding credible sources when your students are doing research - I do include a step for students to write sources and complete a bibliography using internet bibliography sites.
Please contact me with any questions or comments about this guide. I would be happy to help! Thank you!
