PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

PURCHASE BOTH COMMON CORE ALIGNED CURRICULUM UNITS FOR A DISCOUNTED PRICE!

Both units combined is all you will need to teach your students how to write in high school.

Simply begin with a foundation and build from that point with every literature unit you teach.

I have tried to organize both units to the best of my ability. Please remember to follow the the detailed lessons plans that are included.

***************************************************************************
The First Unit (How to Write an Essay

The unit will teach your students how to write an essay in response to literature and contains eight PowerPoints and seven handouts.

The duration of this unit is two weeks and detailed lesson plans aligned to Common Core have been provided.

In all, there are eight PowerPoints and seven handouts.

Writing a good essay is a skill students need to develop in middle school, strengthen in high school, and perfect in college!

What the Unit Covers

The unit covers the introductory paragraph, thesis statement, body paragraphs, in-text citations, and the conclusion. I have also included a lesson on the writing process, which I believe is valuable to students who need to develop metacognitive skills regarding their own writing.

I recommend allowing students to use a computer lab for one class period as students will have multiple questions as some may begin writing an essay for the first time. (I hope not!)

Practice prompts and examples are included to facilitate the writing process and to reinforce writing concepts.
***************************************************************************
The Second Unit (The Research Paper)

This unit will teach students the 8 step process to writing a research paper. There are a total of 11 Power Points and 18 handouts.

I use this unit for my tenth grade students; however, the unit can be used for eleventh or twelfth grade as well.

This Unit Will Teach Students the Following:

★Eight step process to writing a research paper
★The difference between a topic and an issue
★How to narrow a topic into a controversial issue
★How to write a debatable thesis statement
★How to conduct research
★How to prepare a bibliography
★How to create an outline
★ Annotated bibliography
★How to write well developed body paragraphs
★How to write and integrate in-text citations

Writing a research paper is a daunting task for students so I have included many examples that I use to model for students each component of the 8 step process.

I have found that writing a two page research paper with the students to be very effective.

We type the paper together as a class and they watch as I model for them the thinking process of writing body paragraphs.

This “Think Aloud” strategy works well! This strategy also enables my students to ask questions as I write.

The unit will take three weeks and is outlined in the lesson plans which I have included.
