English Language Arts: Writing to Inform, Argue, and Analyze

This module embeds lessons that reflect key shifts in teaching writing as emphasized by the Common Core State Standards. The lessons are organized by grade level spans (kindergarten through grade two, grades three through five, grades six through eight, and grades nine through twelve) for teaching informative and argument writing genres that convey and critique information, present and analyze arguments, and use evidence and research to communicate for academic and real-world purposes. Suggestions are included for assessing student writing and for scaffolding lessons so all students, especially English learners and students with disabilities, learn and employ the rhetorical and language features of the genres.
