According to Rose, “almost every state now assesses students’ writing in elementary school, middle school, and again in high school. Students are given a specific prompt and asked to respond with a narrative, an expository, a descriptive, or a persuasive essay (2011).” Are your students prepared for this challenge? Do they have the writing skills to be successful with writing expository essays? As teachers know, the expository essay can be the most challenging for students and strong expository writing skills are not only critical for helping students be successful on state assessments but also for their academic careers. Come join us for our next English Learner Teacher Academy where we dive into the expository essay and show you ways to demystify expository writing for your students. Teachers will learn valuable strategies for teaching students how to write powerful expository essays and will be provided with step by step lessons and accompanying lesson implementation resources for Elementary and Secondary levels that can be used right away in the classroom. Teachers will also receive additional student writing resources to add to the Young Author’s Handbook that we have been building throughout each session in the Writing Process Series.
This is not a session you will want to miss! We look forward to seeing you at our next session!
Please remember that you need to register on Eduphoria to receive the valuable workshop resources. Note: This session is recommended for teachers of English Learners in Grades 2-12.
