Domain/Curricular Structure: Writers workshop: Introducing your writing topic Goal/Concepts to be explored: • I want the students to understand different strategies that authors use to introduce a topic. Ex. Surprise the reader, quotes somebody, ask a question • I want the students to be able to construct their own introduction to a topic based on the animal they have been researching. Objectives/Indicators: • Standard 2: Write informative/explanatory texts to examine and convey complex ideas and information clearly and accurately through the effective selection, organization, and analysis of content. o 1.Write informative/explanatory texts that: a. introduce a topic and group related information together; b. use information from multiple print and multimedia sources; c. include illustrations to aid comprehension; Content/Rationale: • I chose this lesson because these students have been working on researching animals that they have each selected. They will soon be creating a mini-booklet about their individual animal. From what I have observed with this group of students is that they generally have a hard time getting started on their writing, so I want to use this lesson to focus on different ways to grab the readers’ attention.
