Week 26: Are We There Yet?

This book, Are We There Yet? by Alison Lester is filled with all kinds of information about Australia. While the book is great to read just to learn more about Australia, it is also a great text to use to show how to encourage students to add more detail to their writing. There are sections of the text that have a "topic sentence" and have sentences that add more detail about that topic. This book is great to show writers how to add more detail to their writing and how to group their information and sentences together.
