Effective Writing is More Than a Five Paragraph Essay

Groups become experts in one aspect of the six traits of writing, prepare a PowerPoint presentation, jigsaw, and teach others about their trait. Writers then focus on these traits as they compose a persuasive essay about a person they consider to be an American hero. Lists of Three Letter Acronyms (TLAs) and Extended Three Letter Acronyms (ETLAs) often found on the Internet, as well as lists of palindromes and oxymorons are also included. 17 lessons are contained in the unit.
