Extend or deepen your unit or focus on the study of language with my Author’s or Writer’s Craft Introductory Unit, which includes a mini-lesson, Do-Now’s, Information for the Teacher, Craft Practice, a Craft Study assignment that can be used again and again with ANY text to study the art and craft of writing, and much more. Learning how to help students look at writer’s craft changed the way I teach and the way my students learn. Use a craft study (available in my unit) as the unit assessment.
