Even students who have had a lot of experience writing often complain that they have nothing to write about! But what they need isn't topics, but the ability to organize and clarify their thoughts around a topic and develop that content into sentences, and those sentences into paragraphs. All the help your students need about writing and learning across the curriculum is in this book.
Included are everyday writing activities, special writing projects, poetry templates and the Four Square Writing Method. As your students plan and organize information, they'll move beyond recitation of information to develop deeper understanding.
Your students will enjoy working on learning logs, double entry journals, class logs, brochures, how-to guides, diamantes, noun poems, cinquains, biographical poems and more. They'll also learn how to use the Four Square graphic organizer to help them focus, organize and support their writing with detail. Before you know it, they'll be writing articles, essays and stories with ease!
