This lesson plan is geared toward secondary students. It is a 4 day lesson introducing writing workshop and the writer’s notebook. Days can easily be separated to work as a stand-alone activity. This is primarily meant for the first few weeks of school. Time frames are a suggestion based on a 48-52 minute class period. Lessons are segment into natural stopping place that allow for longer or shorter class periods. It is my goal to provide ready to use lessons that require little to no prep
Handouts are linked in materials list as well as where they are used in the lesson. All handouts are linked to a google drive except if they don’t originate from me. The links will take you to the source in which I found them. All resources linked are to free version at the time of the creation of this lesson.
This lesson is meant to be used in conjunction with my Setting Norms and Developing Whole Class and Personal Mission Statements lesson. However, it can stand alone. In conjunction, they provide a great foundation to the beginning of the school year.
