What makes a good information report?

When exploring information reports we decided that the following elements were really important:Planning (using a graphic organiser)

Title

Introduction (general statement/classification/description of what report is about)

Paragraphs to organize information (3 or more sentences per paragraph)

Topic sentences at the beginning of each paragraph

Sentence Fluency (long and short sentences)

Conjunctions (to make some sentences longer)

Facts

Technical words

Summary ( to tie all of the information together)

Revision using ARMS – Add, Remove, Move, Substitute

Editing using CUPS – Capitals, Understanding, Punctuation, Spelling
