Title:                                                      We Are Writers
Primary Subject Area/Grade Level:   Reading and Writing (Grade 2)
Author:                                                  Jane Kingsley


Upon examination of the fourth grade scores on the 2002 North Dakota State Assessment it appears that students need more practice in these areas:

  • Using simple organizational strategies when gathering and organizing information
  • Understanding that different purposes require different forms of writing
  • Using editing to improve reader comprehension

Both state and local scores indicate these areas of performance are lower than other areas on the assessment. This unit gives students instruction and practice in these skills.
