Crafting Expository Papers

Mastery in informational and expository writing is central to the success of intermediate and middle-school students. In Crafting Expository Papers, Susan Koehler explicitly explains five instructional steps that develop expository skills, from developing details and creating organization through writing effective expository paragraphs and papers, then revising and editing for publication. She includes lessons with specific Target Skills® to support your students’ progress, and suggests timelines that will help you plan your curriculum. Students proficient in the genre of expository writing are empowered to craft well-organized written responses on subject-area assessments and standardized tests. They are able to write well-supported reports and term papers and will be prepared to handle the majority of writing that the majority of people will do in their lives. But teaching your students how to compose expository papers also has a larger impact on their education—becoming a proficient writer is often the first step in becoming a proficient reader. Students who learn the nuances of crafting expository writing will recognize and comprehend that craft while reading and responding to informational texts. Throughout, Koehler’s comprehensive approach and clear instructions make this book a unique and valuable resource for any teacher of developing writers.
