Summary: Students will be organized into Nacho Party Cooperative groups. Each group must complete challenges to eventually earn a Nacho Party. Each group presents their own assigned type of writing to the class (i.e. descriptive, expository, persuasive, and narrative). All other groups are required to take notes while current group is presenting. Then students will take a quiz, as a team. The winner will receive 20 nacho party points. Participation points will also be awarded during jigsaw activity.

Narrative Writing Narrative writing is telling a story about something that happened or explain a series of events that have occurred in your life. The events are written chronologically so readers will follow your message easier. Narrative essays are usually called personal essays where authors explain something that happened in their lives. Expository Writing Expository writing is writing where you provide information to readers by using facts, tables, or other methods that will help you to explain your essay. Technical Writing Technical writing is a type of writing where you will write about something you want to show people how to do such as "How to Take Care of Hamsters?" This type of paper will list specific steps that you should do. Persuasive Writing Persuasive writing is a type of writing where you have a specific opinion about something such as "Children need to progress at their own rate instead of being pushed to the next grade." You paper will be for or against that topic. You will choose which side they strongly believe and formulate their opinion and attempt to persuade others to believe your way. Descriptive Writing Descriptive writing is writing where you will describe something. You could describe a place you visited, your neighborhood, your house, or any other place you would like to describe. Your writing needs to use descriptive adjectives and written in a realistic way so that readers can visualize your place.
