How to use this resource:

This resource assesses the important literacy skill of informational writing. After distributing this assignment, I collaboratively read through the 5-step writing process with my students. I emphasize that the 5-step writing process is not necessary in every writing situation; however, students will be evaluated on their adherence to this writing process for this writing informational text assignment.


I then explain the instructions for this assignment, outlined in the information paragraph handout. I provide students the opportunity in class to brainstorm ideas, as well as select an idea and begin developing research questions. They may require your guidance when refining a topic to ensure it is specific, and to create questions that will generate substantial research (i.e. avoiding "yes/no" questions). I will then allow students some class time to research answers to their questions over the span of a day or two. You may choose to assign these steps for homework if you wish.


Students will then begin writing their draft and revise their ideas. An "Edit Form" has been provided within this resource, which includes and editing checklist for students to use in order to ensure they have completed this step of the writing process. If you wish, you can have students peer edit by swapping paragraphs with a partner and using this form as a peer editing checklist.

Upon assigning this assessment, I also establish two other details: when the assignment is due, and how the assignment will be published (submitted). This can be anything from submitting printed and double-spaced, to posted online in a public domain!

An editable 4-level rubric has been included with a "notes" section for additional consolidation. Be sure to adjust the grading scale of this information paragraph rubric to meet the standards of your curriculum.

This lesson is a great addition to the Ontario Literacy Course (OLC) or preparation for the Ontario Literacy Test (OSSLT), but can be used in any middle school or secondary language arts classroom to teach the basics of informational paragraph writing!
