It is my sincere hope that you will find this beneficial to your students as they work to meet the demands of real-world writing. While this was created for an action research unit in my graduate studies, I have also used it in my personal classroom with much success.

Because I do not believe in canned lessons, the full product includes all elements in an editable version. Some formatting issues might occur based on my use of specific fonts and settings installed on your computer. To help combat that problem, I have included the student documents with formatting preservation in PDF.

As with all of my files, I will upload new versions as they are available. If you have any suggestions, please feel free to contact me at Stephanie.jkirk@gmail.com at any time.
