Our Topic Focus for Writing lesson plan teaches students strategies for staying focused on a specific topic in their writing. During this lesson, students are asked to choose a topic and write a paragraph about it, starting with a draft and then rewriting a final, edited version. Students are also asked to read paragraphs and identify the topic of each, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson material.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to remain focused on a topic while writing and strengthen writing as needed by revising and editing.
