Step up to writing- Love this method for teaching expository writing.  Having students use graphic organizers and highlighters helps cement the concepts. You can also use strips of the colors for the students to write the sentences on, and then have them glue the different colored strips on a piece of construction paper to use as a model before they write on normal paper.

Good Topic Sentences. Remove the question option for STAAR (my English teacher colleagues say kids get penalized because it is 'weak' for 8-12 graders to do this), and you have a totally awesome anchor for Expository writing.
