Product Description
As students move into the upper Elementary grades and Middle school, strong expository writing skills and research skills are critical. Students are inherently curious, ask questions and look for answers, but what do they do with their facts once they have found information and done the research? This presentation goes through 9 critical strategies for writing and improving research papers

In this interactive SmartBoard presentation, fourth through sixth graders will learn about:

1. Strategies for synthesizing information (using a fruit smoothie vs. fruit bowl metaphor)
2. Organizing similar information
3. Organizing related information in a logical order
4. Connecting similar information with linking words and phrases
5. Developing strong topic sentences
6. The structure of a paragraph (using the paragraph burger metaphor)
7. The function of a good introduction that hooks in the reader
8. The difference between a strong thesis statement and a weak one
9. Writing a compelling conclusion and guiding questions to frame thinking about a strong conclusion.

Using this 55-slide interactive presentation, students get a chance to test out these strategies, and they learn concrete strategies to improve their writing as well as strong metaphors to help them remember different writing strategies.
