This file is week one of a 12 week curriculum that teaches a student how to write an expository essay. (Now termed Informative/Explanatory by the Common Core.)
4 days of lessons + 1 quiz in text with ANSWERS
*writing process review with powerpoint (on you tube videos - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nT9jB2SCqGs & http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NxH3suIXwpE
(THIS COMES in a POWERPOINT when you buy the full unit)
*grammar lessons including subject/predicate, complete sentences, fragments & run-ons
*links to appropriate grammar games
*a proofreading chart
* A table of contents that will show you the contents of the entire curriculum
I am offering this all for FREE so you can get an idea of the rest of the unit that is posted as Expository Essay Unit. The Unit teaches how to write an expository essay with 11 more weeks of instruction, activities, checklists, rubrics, powerpoint presentations, and assessments all with answer keys.
The unit was written with the homeschool market in mind but is based on my research and 19 years of non-homeschool teaching experience. It is suitable for anyone needing this valuable skill from grades 4 and up.
Thanks and Enjoy!
