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.
