These timesaving, comprehensive resources provide you with everything you need to masterfully teach the mechanics of writing in ways that support all students. Short, scripted lessons, presented in a consistent 3-day cycle, engage students as you weave explicit instruction into your ongoing curriculum. By using the Skills Continuum and recommended Year-Long Planning Calendar, you can easily find suggested teaching topics by grade, combine them with your state standards and class needs, and then build a personalized curriculum map for the school year. Numerous templates, including a student “Skills I Can Use” sheet, help chart and celebrate each student's progress!

Comprehensive planning tools and reproducibles:
  • streamline teacher prep time
  • empower student transfer of learning to authentic writing tasks
