Flat. Stale. Formulaic. Too often, these words come to mind as we read students’ expository writing. Author and veteran writing teacher, Susan Koehler, will help you breathe life into expository writing. Crafting Expository Papers outlines five steps for effective writing instruction, each accompanied by detailed lesson plans. Concise, targeted mini-lessons employ expository literature models to teach organizational strategies and writing craft skills. Writing practice is achieved in a daily workshop environment that is always followed by response activities designed to give your students the opportunity for feedback and interaction. Learn to provide practice activities that help your students refine their craft and build their writing tool chests. Guide your students through the writing process as they develop authentic, meaningful, detail-rich expository pieces. Crafting Expository Papers will sharpen your skills as a writing teacher and will unlock the creative potential of your young authors.
