Developing Strategic Writers through Genre Instruction
Resources for Grades 3-5
- This highly practical guide offers a systematic approach to instruction in the three main writing genres--narrative, persuasive, and informative--that students in grades 3-5 are expected to master. Ready-to-use lesson plans and materials are grounded in research on strategy instruction and self-regulated learning, and connect with learning standards. Presented are ways to teach students strategies for planning, drafting, evaluating, revising, editing, and publishing writing in each genre, while making connections between reading and writing. Sixty-four reproducible planning forms and student handouts are provided; the large-size format facilitates photocopying. The Appendix contains a Study Guide to support professional learning. Purchasers also get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials.
