Writing Unit of Study,5th Grade Information Unit, The ability to read and write information texts is a critical skill that adults use regularly in both their personal lives and in the job. market Therefore it is important for elementary students to have a strong foundation with both reading and writing within this. text type The text type of information writing however is very broad Such writing includes genres such as nonfiction books. pamphlets websites feature articles textbooks research reports encyclopedias atlases guidebooks and blogs It is a challenge to. pinpoint one type of information text as its own entity because the text type tends to match the information to which it belongs. For example information writing written by a travel commentator would most likely be in the text type of a brochure whereas more. specific information about a topic may appear in a feature article or encyclopedia There is however one thing every information. text type has in common each of them expects the writer to teach readers about a topic Given this correlation the following unit. teaches fifth graders to create an engaging information book about a topic of their own expertise. It is true in the subject of writing especially that the writer can only engage readers in a topic if the writer herself is engaged in that. same topic It is important then for young writers to write about self selected topics of great personal interest in order to focus on. learning the appropriate structures of information writing. This unit will invite fifth graders to publish a voice filled non fiction picture book And because it is assumes that fifth graders have. been in an aligned system of Writing Workshop from grades K 4 this unit expects students to do so within a more literary non. fiction context Katie Wood Ray defines literary non fiction as Any non fiction writing in any container that does the work of. informing and engaging Study Driven 2006 p 215 In other words literary non fiction is more than report writing it engages. But just like any type of information text literary non fiction is also broad and takes on its own structures The mentor texts that. align with this unit will provide insight into the structures they emphasize. As stated the unit focuses on students selecting topics of great personal interest that they know a lot about and could teach others. Yet the unit also has the potential to focus on content area topics of expertise if teachers would like to attempt such work For. example if the class has recently finished studying Westward Expansion in social studies students could choose to write. information books about self selected expertise topics within that particular subject i e The Gold Rush The Oregon Trail The Pony. Express etc, Common Core Writing Standard 2 states that fifth graders can do the following. Write informative explanatory texts to examine a topic and convey ideas and information clearly. This standard goes further to expect appropriate structure W 5 2 a elaboration W 5 2 b linking words W 5 2 c precise. language domain specific vocabulary W 5 2 d and conclusions W 5 2 e In its in entirety Common Core Writing Standard 2. expects fifth graders to organize their information writing within a voice filled structure and this unit was created to assist in. meeting each goal within Common Core Writing Standard 2. This unit will provide a brief introduction to standards W 5 7 W 5 8 and W 5 9 which expects fifth graders to participate in research. during their writing projects Later in the school year MAISA units will explore this standard in more depth devoting an entire unit. of study to the complex task of researching within an information text type It is expected that the following unit of Literary. Nonfiction Extending Information Writing will set up a solid foundation for expository writing structure so fifth graders can later. conduct research based writing projects with greater ease.

At the start of the unit it will be important for teachers to comb their classroom libraries for a variety of voice filled information. books The more students are immersed in reading this text type the more successfully they will write it Teachers should pull texts. that are written not only to inform but also to engage in a creative way Literary non fiction books may take the form of a narrative. text traditional expository or a hybrid of the two types Several mentor texts and teacher text possibilities are listed in the. Resource Materials Packet and throughout the unit of study. Although it may be a challenge to find one perfect mentor text with everything a teacher expects his her students to accomplish a. number of mentor texts may be gathered each comprised of a few goals within each book For example one mentor text may have. a wonderful Introduction but no Glossary While another has a fantastic Glossary but no Table of Contents This is just fine. Teachers should choose their favorite mentor texts for the unit using several different books for the lessons which fit most. appropriately Also when using information mentor texts the focus is on studying characteristics and text structures rather than. content per se For example a teacher may use a book about wolves to assist students in understanding how this information. book and others tend to go how it is organized by topics how the text teaches through facts various text features as bold face. captions photographs etc It is not the intent to use the book so students learn a lot about wolves The book merely serves as a. vehicle for studying informative text, It will also be important for teachers to plan another time during the day for shared writing The unit will make references to a class. shared book so it will be most helpful if the class indeed has one started by the end of the Immersion Phase The class book offers. a perfect tool for students to practice lessons make revisions and edit. In terms of volume teachers should expect students to end this unit with two completed information books one of which will be. published After the first twelve lessons and possibly sooner it is likely that fourth graders will be ready to begin another piece of. writing and cycle through the process another time Process journey checklists and other scaffolds will be provided for students to. do just that, To assist students in reaching the goals of this unit teachers will take them through six main concepts. 1 Immersing students to study the purpose structure and characteristics of information writing while generating possible. writing ideas,2 Selecting topics and planning structure. 3 Planning and writing chapters,4 Making intentional craft decisions to elaborate. 5 Elaborating to add a variety of information with greater independence. 6 Revising and editing to prepare for publishing, The unit culminates with a celebration activity goal setting and student reflection.
Additional considerations, Some teachers keep table bins which hold each student s notebook and folder seated at that table Other teachers have students. keep their writer s notebooks and writing folders in student s desks Alternatively some classrooms house materials in magazine. boxes lined up along a shelf or ledge Teachers also consider whether to utilize pencils or pens with students Pens allow students to. write without the pull to erase but instead edit through crossing out Pens also help teachers see all the ideas placed on the paper. even though teachers were not present to view the writing in action Teachers should think about the habits and routines that will. need to be demonstrated based on organization and material choices Teachers should add sessions to the unit demonstrating. habits rituals and routines based on their own classroom s practice of workshop structures Please see Routines and Rituals section. for more information, Partnerships are an integral part of a learning community Teachers should discuss with colleagues their philosophy and procedures. for forming student partnerships, There are many ways to publish or go public with writing pieces The units give some suggestions however the CCSS W 3 6 4 6 5 6. suggests students use keyboarding as one way to publish their pieces If students have limited experience with keyboarding. teachers may want to consider opportunities outside of writing workshop for students to learn these skills.
