6 Best Writing Lessons Ever

Quick Writes – Informational/Expository Writers’ Craft

You’ve spent weeks and months teaching expository writing – so many key skills to remember and apply! And sometimes after just a long weekend students come back and seem to have forgotten the bulk of it! Review, reinforcement, practice – to me it’s like learning a new computer skill – if I don’t practice some aspect of it every day, I forget it. These Daily Quick Writes in expository craft provide little brushstrokes of review on the range of skills students need to assimilate. Pull the ones that you think your class needs most. Assign as before school work, in a writing station, or as homework.
