The Literary Essay, Grade 5 Trade Book Pack includes books that are used in the unit to model effective writing techniques, encourage students to read as writers, and provide background knowledge.

  • Every Living Thing by Cynthia Rylant
  • Marshfield Dreams by Ralph Fletcher
  • Eleven and Papa by Sandra Cisneros

Because some teachers may want to purchase class sets and others may already own these popular books, these are available as an optional, but recommended, purchase.

“Any effective writing curriculum acknowledges that it is important for writers to be immersed in powerful writing—literature and other kinds of texts. Children especially need opportunities to read as writers. By studying the work of other authors, students not only develop a felt sense of what it is they are trying to make but also learn the traditions of that particular kind of text.” Lucy Calkins
