Writing Element: Organization

Welcome to the second week review of the four writing elements.  Each week, you will be assessed on the specific element reviewed by completing a timed essay assessment similar to FCAT Writing. Fun!!

There are four writing elements which make-up the criteria for how writers are assessed. These elements include: focus, organization, support, and conventions.  Last week, we reviewed the element of focus.  This week, we will review the writing element of organization.

The element of organization builds upon the skills which were assessed last week during the writing element of focus.  You will notice how the same skills you practiced last week will be assessed within the writing element of organization, and some new skills are added in.  It's getting more challenging, kiddos, but I have faith in you.

Get ready to "Write On!" this week!

Take a look at this video presentation.  I also emailed everyone a pdf copy of the presentation as well as some additional information.  Feel free to post or email any questions or comments.
