K: Writing Text Type Prewrite Organizers - Poster Set

Learning Headquarters


Do our writers have tools to tackle each step of the writing process? How do we ensure that they understand the complex rigor to meet or exceed standard for Argument (Opinion), Informative/Explanatory, and Narrative writing? These Writing Text Type Organizers are designed to help support students in producing writing that conquers the grade-level-specific text type components.

With these research-based organizers, teachers will break down their thinking during Teacher Demonstration, emphasizing key aspects of the universal writing process in bite-sized, palatable pieces.

Prewrite: This focused tool clearly and logically demonstrates the prewrite step of the writing process. The prewrite organizer pinpoints a controlling idea and prompts the writer to keep a laser-like focus while generating supportive details. This multi-faceted strategy can be used with writers of any level; from emergent to developing, in order to make thinking visible. Beginning writers start with graphic representation and letter strings, whereas others build a picture with words and phrases. The prewrite organizer is utilized to effectively communicate across text types and content areas.
