Expository, Opinion, Response to Text Writing Guide (Grade 3,4,5,6,7,8)
This guide covers all that The Comprehensive Expository and Opinion Writing does plus a whole a lot more! Updated and expanded to meet all the 21st century standards – specific lessons break response to text, research simulation and literary analysis tasks into manageable skills necessary for comprehensive, thorough responses. Also includes research skills, note taking and how to cite textual evidence. Two pacing charts are included: one for schools who intend to teach Expository/Opinion and Response to Text writing across the entire span of the school year, and another for schools that prefer to focus instruction over two eight-week units, one earlier in the year and one toward the end of the year.
This resource can be used as a “stand alone” writing approach or one that needs to supplement an existing writing resource. If you currently have the Comprehensive Expository Writing Guide we have added many new lessons that apply these skills to Response to Text, literary analysis and research simulation tasks. These new grade level specific guides are the go to resource for anyone interested in meeting the 21st century writing standards.
