You will gain a stronger understanding of the key characteristics of expository writing as well as a proven, practical, research-based methodology that works in the real world of the classroom. Participants will come away with specific lesson plans with clear objectives that empower you to understand a variety of expository writing challenges such as the informational essay/report, the "how to" piece, compare contrast, and response to text. You will explore the reading-writing connection by analyzing and annotating the organizational structure, learn specific strategies for crafting broad yet distinct main ideas, generating powerful supporting detail, compelling introductions and effective conclusions.
