Reading and Writing Across Genres: Fall Trimester (3rd/4th Grade)
In this fall trimester course, students will read a book of choice from each of four assigned reading genres and use lessons from their reading to write narrative, persuasive, informational, and fiction prose.
This course series is designed to engage students in active and purposeful reading and writing. Good writing requires more than accurate spelling and correct grammar. We know this from reading: I'm sure you've read books you love, and other books that seem so boring that you can't even remember what you just read. The strangest part is... someone else might think that same book is great! Why is that? In this course, you'll learn some tools to unlock different genres of reading, and apply...
Students will improve their understanding of the format and purpose of various genres of writing Students will write narrative, informational, and persuasive texts of fiction and nonfiction Students will follow the writing process of planning, drafting, revising, and editing their work Students will practice applying observations from one genre to their own work in another genre
A reading list will be shared at least two weeks before the course begins. Learners will need to have one book for each three-week unit by the start of the unit. Learners should be able to find book options at no cost through their local libraries, or they may choose to purchase books. Digital books are also acceptable as long as students can view them while they are in class (different device or browser window). A unit packet will be shared at the start of each unit containing guiding questions to aid reading and writing. We won't always share all of the answers to the packet questions during class; Rather, the packet serves to prepare students to participate in broader class discussions, and to plan and then check their writing. Most students find printing the packet to be very helpful, although it's also possible to view the packet online and record responses in a notebook. Writing assignments may be completed by hand or digitally. Students will have the options to read their work aloud, use the Screen Share feature to show others their work, or to share their work with me in the Teacher tab (either privately or so that I can Screen Share it with the class).
