Teaching Writing to Children Part Two: Expository and Persuasive Writing
Each lesson has a description of the writing genre, how to practice in class, teaching ideas, and ways to display student work. Lessons on bookmaking and publishing are included. Great for writing teachers and homeschoolers.
In this book I will share some of my own experiences in the teaching of expository and persuasive writing, some resources that I have found to be personally rewarding, and some teaching ideas to take with you and use right away in your own classrooms.
One of the first lessons I learned is that for children to become writers, the writing must be meaningful to them. No matter what aspect of writing you are teaching, students need to feel that the subjects they are writing about are important to them.
Another important idea to focus on is the response you and your students give each other. Good writers need an audience - someone to be writing for.
In this book, for each writing genre I will include at least one way for students to present or share their work with others.
