Modeled after the award-winning EMPOWERING WRITERS program, these lessons, graphic organizers, and writing models will take your expository writing pieces from basic to brilliant.
To successfully tackle EXPOSITORY WRITING students need a concrete, manageable approach. The attached lesson is intended for just that. I went through all of the expository standards and pulled out the CORE.
Here are the keys for STAAR success:
Strong Introduction – strong topic sentence using one or more of three hook options
Supported Main Ideas – 2 main ideas using the 4 detail-generating
Reflective Conclusion – strong conclusion using one or more of three concluding options.
I have gone through and modeled all parts of the paper for your
students. I have included all of my modeling in the presentation, including the complete paper.
