6 Best Writing Lessons Ever

Each year, I always begin with section one in my EW Expository/Opinion Guide focusing on author's purpose and genre. Here is one of my most favorite lessons that I introduce when school begins and use it as a staple lesson throughout the year. As I change topics I am teaching about, and incorporate units my students are learning about in science and social studies, I spiral back to this lesson. Guess what the best thing about the side by side activity is? It begins as a foundational lesson starting in K-1. These skills are building each year. So no matter the grade level you are teaching, this lesson is for you! See the samples from classes all over my school below!
