Teaching Ideas Lesson Plans

This resource includes 9 lesson plans that teach the trait of Ideas in narrative, informative and persuasive/argument/opinion. These lessons come from a bundle which includes 18 lessons plans that teach the six traits of writing (ideas, organization, voice, sentence fluency, word choice, and conventions) and are intended for grades K-5. These lesson plans were developed as a resource to support teachers in teaching the six traits using the mentor texts and lesson ideas that were expanded upon from the book The Writing Thief, by Ruth Culham, which is a trait-based strategy to assess and teach writing. All ideas and verbiage from The Writing Thief are clearly cited directly back to the book. You can purchase the entire bundle of 18 lesson plans, individual grade level bundles, or the entire MEGA bundle of 54 lessons.
