Writing Lessons at

After reading through “Using Web 2.0 in the Classroom” in the most recent issue of Reading Today, I went online to to read through a lesson entitled “Weekly Writer’s Blogs.” It was too advanced (i.e., grades 9-12) for my students, but I realized it might not be too old for Ruth’s.

I decided to compile some writing lessons I liked from for Ruth and for all readers too. The writing lessons I picked, from all grade levels, follow below. As with any ReadWriteThink Lesson Plan, you can usually adapt it to for your students. (I’ve adapted high school lesson plans for my kids… it just takes a little work.) HAPPY TEACHING!

  1. Thanks for the mention of the ReadWriteThink site. We are very proud of what we have to offer! If you are interested, we pay educators to publish lesson plans and share teaching ideas. Let me know if you would like more information!


  2. I used Describe That Face earlier this year with my middle schoolers and it was one of the best assignments ever. I would highly reccommend it.

    P.S. Stacey, your comment did NOT post, and I’d love to have it.
