SAVE TIME AND MONEY WITH THIS AWESOME BUNDLE!
Jennifer Serravallo's The Writing Strategies Book has been a lifesaver - it's chalk-full of amazing strategies designed to boost students' writing!
I LOVE the charts that are outlined in the book, but don't always have time to draw them out by hand. As such, I created of the charts from Writing Strategy Goals #1: Composing with Pictures; Goal #2: Engagement; Goal #3: Generating and Collecting Ideas; AND Goal #4: Focus/Meaning. Each chart comes in full color along with the corresponding strategy # listed in the upper right-hand corner.
NOTE: You will need the The Writing Strategies Book in order to have background on how to use each strategy chart with students.
These charts can be used in a variety of ways:
