The step-by-step lessons in this book help teachers model the three types of writing students must master to meet the Common Core Standards: Opinion/Argument, Informative/Explanatory, and Narrative. The lessons help students identify the key features and purpose of each text type and support them as they practice writing in each of these forms. Includes reproducible guided and independent writing frames and student self-assessment checklists. For use with Grade 5.
