Writing a Short Report
Once you finish prewriting, you are ready to start writing your report. This lesson's activities will help you write a strong beginning, middle, and ending. You'll also read another student's short report to see how to bring all of the parts together.
Writing the Beginning Part
Your report should begin with a focus statement. The focus names the topic and gives a specific thought about what makes it special.
- Specific topic: Casimir Pulaski Day
- Thought or feeling: Celebrates the birth of a Revolutionary War hero from Poland
