Grade 3 ELA Module 2A, Unit 1, Lesson 11

ON-DEMAND ASSESSMENT: WRITING AN INFORMATIONAL PARAGRAPH ABOUT HOW A BULLFROG SURVIVES

This lesson is the first formal writing in Module 2. Emphasize to the class that writing is more than just organizing ideas or editing for conventions. In order to write well about something, you need to know a lot about it. Students have been building that knowledge during their reading, and may end up rereading or building more knowledge as they write. In this lesson, students build off the planning they did in Lesson 10: their Bullfrog Research matrix and their Accordion graphic organizer.
