Writing Unit Four Non-Fiction Essays

This week we are beginning our fourth unit of writing. This unit is non-fiction writing with a focus on writing essays or reports. This unit will conclude before spring break but will be assessed as part of the third-trimester grading cycle.

Students will learn how to choose a strong fact-based main idea and how to support their main idea with evidence and details.

We will begin by learning how to create a well written and supported paragraph. Then we will move on to writing full essays.

The essays will follow a traditional five-paragraph structure, as seen below.

Here is the rubric we will use to assess the writing for this unit:
