What is a standards-based writing lesson that I could be taught to 11th graders that includes the following:1) Explicit descriptions of teacher strategies and corresponding student activities for each of the following writing stages: prewriting, drafting, revising, editing, and publishing. 2) I would like the lesson plan to able to extend over a 2-3 day period (about 3 hours total). 3) I need it to include both content standards for ELA Common Core Standards and CA English Language Development Standards. 4) I would like the lesson to be teachable to at-risk students, so students who are difficult to engage.http://www.cde.ca.gov/be/st/ (Common Core State Standards)http://www.cde.ca.gov/be/st/ss/documents/finalelaccssstandards.pdf (ELA Content Standards)http://www.cde.ca.gov/be/st/ss/documents/englangdevstnd.pdf (English Language Development Standards for California Public Schools (1999)).As you briefly summarize a standards-based writing lesson that could be taught to 11th graders, I like the idea of a lesson called I Have a Dream. writing prompt/writing process lesson. Students can write an informative piece about their dreams for social justice, anti-gangs, personal or career aspirations, environmental awareness, etc. This unit can be made into options, so students who are poets, songwriters, or rappers can also structure their final product into a creative writing piece. Students can formulate a 2-paged essay, song, story, or rap (or whatever length you wish ) to express their own dream after studying MLKs or President Obamas speeches, speeches by Maya Angelo or any famous writer/orator, or after reading a play about dreams from Lorraine Hansberry, Arthur Miller, etc. By giving the students a choice of the product, it motivates the reluctant writers, so the rap one is great! I use Commons song, I have a dream and show the video from The Freedom Writers movie as a visual/auditory supplement on day 1.ELA Common Core Standards
