This is a sample of a year long common-core aligned interactive notebook writing program that improves student writing through sentence imitation (generative grammar). Each day, the teacher guides students through a scaffolded imitation of a sentence.
At the end of the week, students will use the sentence patterns they’ve experimented with to construct a paragraph. At the end of the six weeks, students will construct an essay using a variety of sentence patterns that they’ve experimented with.
Each of the six week sections deals with a different type of writing: Narrative 1 (Descriptive), Narrative 2 (Plot and Dialogue), Explanatory 1 (Develop Facts and Details), Explanatory 2 (Explain With Quotes and Graphics), Argumentative 1 (Point and Counter Point), and Argumentative 2 (Making Your Point With Reason and Evidence).
I have a year long common core aligned set of this writing program coming out for grades 11 &12, and 6, 7, & 8.
