PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Writing to Inform and Explain (Vol. 2): “How To Survive…” (A Mini-Writer’s Workshop for Grades 6-8) is part of a series of mini-workshops designed to engage even the most reluctant of young writers! This quick-paced, 2-week writer’s workshop is broken down into small, manageable steps which will keep your students interested and excited.

Each mini-workshop in this series contains:
★ (1) mentor piece for students to analyze and use as a model while writing
★ (2) prewriting organizers
★ (3) three writer’s craft mini-lessons that support the skills necessary for writing strong essays, as well as the common core State Standards (CCSS).
★ (6) Beautiful anchor posters (both in color and BW for easy printing!)
Finding Your Voice!
Quote in a Quote!
Keeping Consistent Verb Tense
Read-Around-Groups Directions*
Revising and Editing Checklist*
★ (1) rubric for scoring students’ writing

(*these posters/lesson plans will be found in each product in my narrative and inform/explain writing series)

I’ve also included Common Core alignment for grades 6-8 (though these lessons could easily be adapted for 4-5th grade, as well as 9-12th grades!) and detailed, step-by-step lesson plans.

If teaching students to write to inform and explain is part of your curriculum, you will not be disappointed with this mini-writer’s workshop!
