Developing Informational Writing Skills Unit Plan - Grades 3 and 4

Teach Starter Publishing
10 x lessons | Suitable for grades: 3 - 4

This writing unit addresses the informative text type; specifically how to write a well-structured informational text.

This unit plan consists of 10 lessons of approximately 60-minutes each.

The sequence of lessons and suggested time frames should be regarded as a guide only; teachers should pace lessons based on their class’s individual learning needs.

An independent writing task, which may couple as an assessment task, is included in the unit. The number of lessons required to complete this task may vary from class to class.

This unit of work addresses the broad textual focus of informational writing. Teachers are encouraged to select a specific informative text type to focus on throughout the unit, e.g., sequencing, description, compare and contrast. In addition to this, teachers may also wish to select a specific content focus for students to write about, e.g., animals, objects, people. The resources accompanying this unit provide choices for teachers in these three content areas.
