What People are Saying

“Great bundle! I taught High School English for 12 years before switching to middle school reading and writing. I was very nervous to teach the writing portion. This bundle is very thorough and has helped guide my lessons. Everything you could need is right here.” Brandi B.

“I am so excited to begin using this with my students. The videos provide quality professional development in the comfort of my own home!!! I would purchase this again and again! Thank you putting together such innovative writing ideas and strategies!” Magic in the Middle

“I love having access to these wonderful ideas and lessons in one place. I love your work. It is always highly challenging, yet accessible for the students. It is also fun for them. Thank you for sharing all of your hard work!” Jennifer D.

“An amazing amount a material in this product! I am in the process of using this with my 8th grade class and it has been a blessing as I prepare for the new school year. Lots of information and ideas. The short videos were very helpful as I have spent the last decade teaching math and science!” C.C.
