Product Description
Types of Writing Sorting Cards was developed to review and reinforce the characteristics of the three types of writing. Students struggle with rigorous writing assessments when they lack an understanding of these characteristics!

This resource contains three heading cards for each type of writing and three sets of sorting cards. Also included is a five-question assessment to be used as both a formative and a summative.

Copy the heading cards and each of the three sets of sorting cards onto card stock. (We recommend using different colors for each set.) Cut on the dotted lines, mix each set and have students sort. Save a plain paper copy to use as an answer key.

Sort #1 requires sorting the definition of each type of writing under the appropriate heading. We have found this sort to be effective when done prior to each of the others so students can refer to the definitions as they work.

Sort #2 requires sorting descriptions of writing under each heading. There are six descriptions for each type.

Sort #3 requires sorting short, engaging paragraphs under each heading. There are three paragraphs (each approximately 100 words long) for each type of writing.

Have students complete the assessment, work on the sorts in small groups, repeat the assessment as a summative and reflect on what they have learned. Now, they are ready to be authors!
