This is a sample of 3 lesson plans that teach the trait of Ideas in informational writing. These lessons come from a bundle which includes 18 lessons plans that teach the six traits of writing (ideas, organization, voice, sentence fluency, word choice, and conventions) and is intended for grades K-5 within informational writing. These lesson plans were developed as a resource to support teachers in teaching the six traits using the mentor texts and lesson ideas that were expanded upon from the book The Writing Thief, by Ruth Culham, which is a trait-based strategy to assess and teach writing. All ideas and verbage from The Writing Thief are clearly cited directly back to the book. You can purchase the entire bundle of 18 lesson plans at my shop too.
