All Things Upper Elementary: Common Core Persuasive Writing: Pre-Writing and Building Background
A reason why I pin this is because this helped me improve my writing dramatically. As an ESL student, it has always been a big challenge to write an essay or a paper. In high school, my English teacher gave me a lot of On-demand Writing practices. It was a struggle to even write a paragraph at first. I had no idea what to the prompts were about or what to write. Eventually, practicing this made me a better writer.
WOW!!! Great film shorts, adverts, and more to use in teaching, plus lesson ideas! Seriously, this site is amazing!! I can already envision so many ways to use these clips and ideas to motivate and inspire my students and breathe new life into my writing and reading curriculum!
