These interdisciplinary lesson plans allow teachers to improve student writing strength and depth with supplemental history, science, literature or faith content. The Theme-Based Lessons are not intended for use as a curriculum replacement but rather, are an excellent tool for broadening subject knowledge while teaching writing. With these lessons, it is assumed that you have watched the Teaching Writing: Structure and Style DVD's. Without this resource, you will be lacking the insight to teach any of our programs well.
Video vignettes from the Heritage of Canada series add significant interest and content to these valuable writing lesson plans which allow teachers to improve student writing with Canadian Historical content. Twenty-four weekly lessons incrementally teach the Blended Structure and Style models.
Easy-to-follow instructions, source texts, video links, and checklists are included for grade 3-5 levels of students.
Handy reference guides and online teaching accompany this book to easily guide you through the 24 lessons.
