The Model Texts Your Students Need

"More modeling, please!" We hear this often from teachers who are looking for more ways to support their students. Well, we've got your covered!

We've created two model texts for you to use with our You Write It activity.

 

What You'll Need:

 

Here's how we recommend using the model texts:
(All images below are downloadable.)

 

Step 1
As a class, preview Scope's You Write It titled "Why Pigs Rule."

 

Step 2
Pass out and discuss the model text. Choose the version without annotations or, for students who need additional support, the version with annotations.

 

  

 

Step 3
Now it's time for students to write an essay of their own. First review the You Write It "Why You Should Sing" from the April 2017 issue of Scope.

 

Step 4
Have students follow the guidelines at the bottom of the You Write It to write and edit their essays, using "Why Pigs Rule" as a model. Students can also use the Guided Writing activity which walks them through the process of writing their essays.
