Moving through a Machine
using a variety of transitions to explain the workings of an imaginary machine
This lesson was created by NNWP Consultant Corbett Harrison. Corbett demonstrates this lesson during his 7 Elements of a Differentiated Writing Lesson Workshop for Teachers.
The intended "mentor text" to be used when teaching this on-line lesson is the chapter book Homer Price by Robert McCloskey. Before writing, students should listen to and discuss the writing style of this book's author, especially from chapter 3 of this book--you know, the chapter with the doughnuts!
