Design an original lesson for students in the first, second or third grade: An expository writing lesson (informing the reader of a topic that would include facts, such as book reports or research reports) a. Describe two items you would use in your classroom environment to encourage expository writing.
B. Design an original activity (using the attached “WGU Lesson Activity Format”) where students learn an irregular spelling rule (e.g., “child/children”).
C. Design an original read-and-describe activity (using the attached “WGU Lesson Activity Format”) where students read one of their writing samples to a peer and then the peer describes the content of the writing to the class.
Note: In both lesson plans and activities, students should be encouraged to look for correct punctuation, grammar, spelling, and capitalization of words.
