Write as an Expert: Explicit Teaching of Genres

Teaching genre is more than giving young writers structure; it's giving them the chance to learn the language associated with each genre before they tackle the task of writing. Liz Simon helps you introduce genre study into your curriculum effortlessly.

In Write as an Expert, Liz presents a straightforward guide to teaching genre that's ready to use in your next writing lesson. With the busy teacher in mind, Write as an Expert contains 46 black line masters that cover the important tasks associated with each genre. Just some of the subject matter includes:

  • planning and composing letters
  • generating character and plot ideas for fiction
  • listing key words to write original reports
  • using the Inquiry process to guide research
  • creating lead-in paragraphs for articles and exposition
  • proofreading guides for key genres.

There are writing-genre frameworks for early, transitional and extending writers, plus for each genre Liz presents a learning-outcomes profile for you to evaluate and document student progress. Write as an Expert also includes photographs and samples of student writing that show firsthand how Liz's genre-study lessons work in practice.

Trust Liz Simon and watch as your students use more formal language to meet the challenges of different writing forms and different audiences. Read Write as an Expert and make genre part of your writing-workshop structure today.
