PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This bundle includes 3 separate workbooks, one for 6th grade, one for 7th, and one for 8th. Each of these workbooks is also available individually. My school has every English teacher using these workbooks in their respective grades, so kids receive consistent instruction throughout their middle school career which means 7th and 8th grade teachers can focus on improving previously taught skills rather than starting from scratch each year. This also prevents confusion for students since every teacher uses the same vocabulary and has the same expectations. Even if the whole school is not using the workbooks, they are still valuable and effective teaching tools for individual classrooms and even for individual students who need more structure for the writing process.

Each workbook includes the following:
-Definitions of each 6+1 writing trait
-Student-friendly checklist for each trait
-Vocabulary section (thesis statement, main idea, etc.)
-Thesis Statement formula and example
-Chart to practice evaluating thesis statements (each grade has different thesis statements for practice)
-5 hook techniques with examples (quote, anecdote, question, statistic, imagery/figurative language)
-Conclusion paragraph formula and example
-List of transition words
-Sample essay with legend for color coding parts (each grade has a different essay)
-Directions for completing prompt pages
-Blank graphic organizers for examples (bubble map, box map, outline, 4-square)
-Prompts with various organizers (6th grade has 8; 7th grade has 8; 8th grade has 21)
-Prompts without organizers for students to choose their favorite organizers (6th grade has 1; 7th grade has 8; 8th grade has 21)
-Box on each prompt page for either an intro or conclusion paragraph (both are used throughout for practice on both)
-2 pages of suggestions for using the workbook

The 6th and 7th grade workbooks contain different prompts, and the 8th grade workbook contains those from the 6th and 7th grade books as well as 17 others.
