Description

Expand the writing skills of your students with our Writing Effectively Lesson Plan.  This interactive lesson enables students to identify and use the basic steps for writing effectively.  Engage self-reflection and generalize understanding as students consider how the steps improved their writing and areas they would like to further develop if time were permitted.

Sample Classroom Procedure / Teacher Resources Snippet:

  1. Read aloud the short writing sample about an interesting topic. Ask students how they think the writer prepared before he/she began to write.
  2. Allow for responses and discussion.
  3. Ask students what other steps are necessary when a person decides to write a paragraph, book, story, news article, or blog.
  4. Allow for responses and discussion.
  5. Introduce the four steps to writing effectively.
  6. Distribute Writing Effectively content page. Read and review the information with the students. Use the additional resources to enhance understanding.
  7. Tell students that each step is important, and that some experienced writers may move through the steps much faster than beginner writers.
  8. Distribute the Activity page. Read and review the instructions. Pair the students and distribute the writing paper to be used for a rough draft and final copy. (You may decide to allow students to use a word processing computer program.)
  9. Each pair of students will read their stories to the class. When all have completed, ask students if the steps helped them and if they would change their stories if they had more time.
  10. Allow for responses and discussion.

We are newer to homeschooling in the middle school grades and this has been wonderful with helping to challenge my middle school daughter! Things are layed out and easily instructed for me to assist her as well as for her to follow! Thank you very much this has been exciting!
