Writer's Workshop: Reaching to Write Well

Information writers elaborate on their topic of expertise and revise their drafts by…

· Studying mentor texts, taking note of all of the different kinds of information that writers use to teach readers about subtopics.


· Connecting their paragraphs to one another using a logical sequence and transitional words.

· Making their writing interesting, being sure to include both facts and ideas.


Reader's Workshop:

Readers determine the main idea of individual paragraphs, sections, and whole texts. They do this by: (RI.3.2)

· Individual Paragraphs

o Identifying the topic sentence (pop out sentence)

o Thinking about the big idea the sentences have in common and then asking, “What specifically does this paragraph tell me about the big idea?”

Main idea can be implied, meaning it has to be inferred from details within the text, or stated directly by the author.
