Four Types of Writing

In our Four Types of Writing lesson plan, students learn about the four main types of writing, including their characteristics and how to identify them. Students practice identifying which type a piece of writing is and learn when to use each type.

Our Four Types of Writing lesson plan introduces students to the four different types of writing with an overview of each. Students learn the difference between each, how each type is used, and to identify when to use each type. Students utilize their research and creative writing skills in order to find examples of each type of writing online with a partner. Individually, students are also asked to match types of writing with given sentences in order to test their understanding of the lesson.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to list the four main types of writing and define and identify each writing type.

    Useful resources

    Just what I needed for my students to understand the main types of writing. Quite useful too when working with virtual students. My work became simple and easy making me more of an expert in my teaching and learning. Thank you Clarendon and team for saving teachers' time.

    A reluctant writer no more!

    My son hated to write and hated having to do assignments that had anything to do with writing until I found this. After the first day he said "that wasn't too bad" and I didn't have to nag him to do the next lesson on it. We took it slow and made it through the whole lesson without the pouting and attitude that he had before. Thank you for bring yet another great product to us.
