This unit mini-unit is all about writing in real life. Students will engage in the genre of writing for real-life reasons. The idea of formal versus informal writing will be at the core of this unit. Writing things like recipes, notes, invitations, greeting cards, and more will be the focus. Students will move along the writing process in an abbreviated form depending on the task. It will be important to show students when to go through the formal writing process cycle (like for a book) and when it can be simply consulted (for a note or a list).
