What's the Point? Grade 2 Big Book

What features make informative/expository writing strong? How do writers craft informational text to make them powerful? This Big Book and supporting mentor texts provide many examples of strongly crafted informational texts to help students answer these questions. With all the small books written by students, these texts tackle topics, such as “What if dinosaurs lived today?” and “Do I need a car?” An informative piece in the Big Book includes call-outs to help students remember what features are important in crafting informational texts. Use these student-written mentor texts to help learners analyze informative/expository texts and to identify features of these texts before they write their own.
