Hubris at the Bat

Work on the writing traits of organization and idea development in this Six-Trait Writing lesson plan.

Incorporate the concept of theme in their adaptation.

As a teacher in training I get fabulous ideas for lesson plans. Lesson Planet helps me to consider how to write effective learning targets.
