• Expository Writing – Nonfiction writers aren’t necessarily experts on topics they set out to write about, but they are curious about them. They communicate what they learn about a topic in a way that makes the reader curious, too. During this writing piece, students will lean interesting ways to organize and present information while cultivating their own curiosity about pollution.

    This first expository writing piece will be completed primarily as a class. I will provide students with the tools to write a nonfiction piece. Our topic is the same: pollution. Together, we will walk through the process of planning and organizing, researching and note taking, drafting and editing. By the end, students will be able to independently write a well-crafted expository essay.
