6th – 9th Grade
The purpose of this product is to make your students into more proficient writers through practice and repetition.
This product was designed with the thought of backward design–What do we want these students to be able to accomplish at the end of this product? The answer: We want our students to be independent, strong, and proficient writers.
Each mini-unit begins with an engaging article, followed by weekly scaffolding activities. Week one consists of activities on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday; while week two activities are assigned on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, with a complete paragraph at the end of each unit. In addition, an easy rubric is included, that allows students to peer grade or the teacher can use it as an assessment, writing grade or benchmark.
I use the “TALES” response to teach my students how to write a short answer response. You will see this ditto a little later on; however, you can use whatever format works for you.
Every few units provide a new skill, that is added on to the prior unit. By the end of the 20 units, students will be writing independent, strong, and thorough paragraphs.
