Teaching Nonfiction Writing (A Comprehensive Unit) - Common Core

As teachers, you know just how hard it is to fit everything in to your school day! Students are required to learn so much within a school day, that often science and social studies curriculum gets put on the back burner. This “Science-Writing Partnership” nonfiction writing unit is a perfect solution for integrating science curriculum into writing! Teach your students how to write nonfiction texts by introducing skills and strategies that help with writing nonfiction as well as learning the writing process. This unit is designed to be taught during your regular writing block, but the texts that the students will be reading and writing will have a focus on biomes/habitats- a common 3-5 grade level science focus.

The following nonfiction writing skills are taught through the lens of this science content as students progress through the writing process:

1) How to choose appropriate books that will be helpful in gathering information on their topic
2) Using graphic organizers (charts, Venn Diagrams...etc) to collect and organize facts on their topic to be later used for writing paragraphs
3) Comparing and Contrasting information
4) How to write a strong introduction
5) How to write descriptive and clear paragraphs
6) Creating and using text features to display information
7) Using linking words and phrases to group similar facts together
8) Writing a strong conclusion
9) Steps to revising (self and peer)
10) Steps to editing (self and peer)
11) Publishing student writing

In your purchase, you will receive the following:

1) Detailed unit lesson plans for teaching preparation (13 lessons - some taking more than a day
2) A Student Activity Packet: Over 20 pages of student activity sheets
3) An originally written article on a biome for student research
4) A Student drafting packet
5) A final copy template
6) Anchor lesson slides - over 60 slides provided in SMARTBoard, PowerPoint, PDF, and PNG image files
8) A 28-piece, full color bulletin board for teaching the writing process

In all, you are receiving over 160 pages, slides, and bulletin board pieces to conduct a successful and meaningful unit for teaching non-fiction writing!
