Our Informative Writing – Precise Language lesson plan teaches students strategies for making their writing more precise. During this lesson, students are asked to practice editing a wordy piece of writing by cutting unnecessary words and phrases, demonstrating their ability to write and get their point across concisely. Students are also asked to practice rewriting sentences so that they are more precise and specific.
At the end of the lesson, students will know how to use precise and concise language for writing informational or explanatory texts, the term domain-specific vocabulary and learn how to incorporate domain-specific in their writing, and how to be self-reflective writers and improve their writing by eliminating unnecessary or redundant, filler or other words that distract from making their writing clear to readers.
