Analyzing a Writing Mini-Lesson

This activity provides an opportunity for you to focus on specific elements of a mini-lesson. Three video clips feature veteran teacher Sheryl Block and her fourth-grade students in a mini-lesson on adding detail to narrative writing. You will consider the purpose and effectiveness of each part of the lesson and compare your observations with those of another teacher.
