Synthesizing Information: Writing an Apprentice Wanted Ad

This Synthesizing Information: Writing an Apprentice Wanted Ad lesson plan also includes:

Fourth graders view examples of help-wanted ads as they plan and create their own writing in the fourteenth lesson of this unit on colonial trade. The engagement of the class is captured when the teacher shares an actual help-wanted ad for an apprentice printed during colonial times. Learners then analyze a piece of included sample writing as they form a clear understanding of the expectations for their work. Next, young scholars plan their writing using previous research and a graphic organizer before finally writing their own help-wanted ad. A lesson that engages and supports students as they pull together all the research and work they have done in this unit to create a piece of original writing.
