Grade 5 Procedural

Procedural Writing


sequence … directions … steps … process… 

Tara McElwain masterfully weaves art into other subject areas as a means to motivate her students.

In this lesson, Tara gets her kids to create and hand in a piece of procedural writing, showing they understand the rules and steps for glazing, before they are allowed to glaze their pottery!  No late assignments here!

I hope this lesson will serve as a catalyst to integrate writing with the arts in a variety of ways.

Traits: Ideas and Organization
