Students can be independent thinkers and writers. Catch them Thinking and Writing helps teachers implement an effective factual thinking and writing program into primary, middle and secondary schools. For each model, there are descriptions and explanations, practice activities and step-by-step instructions to help facilitate that particular type of factual writing. There are even detailed practical lesson plans that successfully integrate thinking and writing across the curriculum. This helpful resource book features draft writing frames that provide a guide to the structure and purpose for each writing model, rubrics for effectively assessing thinking and writing and ready-to-use blacklines.

Go beyond a process writing approach and provide a powerful link between thinking strategies and specific types of factual writing. Using original thinking and writing strategies, your students will thrive with these thought-provoking and innovative ways of generating, recording and manipulating information.

This dynamic book demonstrates seven different models of factual writing:

  • Narratives
  • Procedures
  • Descriptions
  • Reports
  • Explanations
  • Persuasive arguments
