This 'kit' as I call it is directly aligned with the Common Core writing standards. The kit includes graphic organizers and exercises to help students compose narrative, expository, argumentative, and rhetorical analysis essays. There are also organizers to help students edit, revise, integrate quotations, etc. I have had a great success using this kit in my class and I hope you do too! It is also helpful (and fun) to not only put the documents in a folder for easy organization, but to also color code each sheet. That way you can say, "get out the yellow Essay Writing 101 sheet" and students know exactly what to do. See my Common Core Reading Kit for various reading exercises just like the writing exercises here!
