PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Over the past 15 years of teaching, I have worked diligently and rigorously on planning a unit that covers and builds students’ skills in writing. In the past, my students have struggled writing an introduction, as well as a conclusion; in addition, they have a hard time lengthening their sentences to sound more fluid and refined.

My colleagues have also asked me for some skill practice in writing for other disciplines, and sometimes they will borrow my dittoes to use in their classes. Therefore, I really created this unit for everyone and every discipline.

Included in this bundle is:
*10 2-day lessons ( plus 4 mini-lessons) from the foundations of writing to the final assessment.
The 10 lessons are:
1. Starting with the Foundation-What do we know?
2.Building an Essay, Hamburger Style
3. Sophisticating Our Language-Removing Dead Words
4. Simplifying an Introduction-Introduction Map
4b. Mini-Lesson-Grabbers
4c. Mini-Lesson-Practicing Writing an Introduction Paragraph
5. Writing a TALES Response-Body Paragraph Writing
5b. Formulating Topic Sentences
5c. Formulating Compound Sentences
6. Writing a Body Paragraph-Butterflies
7. Analyzing and Editing Paragraphs
8. Writing a Conclusion-Step-by-Step
9. Assessment-Putting It All Together-Should Cell Phones Be Used in Schools?
10.Peer Editing

Separate Files-
2 Smart Board Files
*Body Paragraph Rubric
*Common Core Essay Rubric
*Peer-Editing Sheet
*Checklist for Writing

*This bundle is 63 Page PDF file, which also includes two Smart Board presentations, as well as 4 Word documents for edit.

*All the lessons come with instructions, an "I Can" statement, and the Common Core Standards for each lesson.

This is an amazing resource, and I use this for my entire 3-Week Writing Unit.
