In this unit, students will learn how to introduce a topic clearly, provide reasons that are supported by facts and details, create an organizational structure in which related ideas are grouped to support purpose. Additionally, students will link opinions and reasons using words and phrases (e.g., for instance, in order to, in addition) as well as providing a concluding statement or section related to the opinion presented. New ideas presented in this unit will need direct, explicit, instruction with a focus at an introductory level. W3.5 Process In previous grades students responded to questions and suggestions from peers, added details to strengthen writing, focused on a topic during the planning stage of writing and edited and revised their writing to strengthen it. In this grade, they are expected to rely on peer support in addition to adult support, develop their planning skills and edit for conventions from the language standards that are being addressed. W3.7 Research In previous grades, students were introduced to shared research and writing projects. For this persuasive brochure, students will be using the mentor Reading Street texts and other sources to gather information about stars and constellations. W3.8 Information In previous grades, students were supported by teachers in recalling information from experiences and gathering information from provided sources to answer questions. In third grade, they will continue to develop these skills as they learn how to recall information from both print and digital sources, take brief notes on sources and sort evidence into provided categories.
