Informative Writing

Our Informative Writing lesson plan teaches students the proper structure of an informative essay and the components that make it up. During this lesson, students use this information to write their own five-paragraph informative essay from start to finish.

Our Informative Writing lesson plan develops written expression as students successfully write a five paragraph informative essay which clearly provides factual information and/or explanations about an expository topic. Starting with a collaborative group brainstorming session to model fact accumulation and categorization of ideas, this interactive lesson demonstrates the process of composing an informative writing piece. Students are asked to identify key elements of a given informative essay, such as topic sentences and the conclusion to reinforce their understanding and help them write their own essays.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to successfully write a five paragraph informative essay which clearly provides factual information and/or explanations about an expository topic.
