There’s no ONE way to teach writing, but there is a way to ensure your students get the most out of the writing workshop by delivering writing instruction will move your students’ writing from the trenches to the frontline. At Operation EDU, we’ve developed and designed our middle school writing program, Mission Writing, to do more than just align with the Common Core. Want to motivate your students to write? We can do that! Want to create writers that know how and when to apply, and break, the writing rules? We can help you do that too.
Mission Writing is a writing & grammar program designed for grades 5-8. Those lone middle school writing teachers searching desperately for a program that ‘gets’ what it takes to teach middle school will finally fill their toolboxes with lessons that deliver a PUNCH! Our first unit, Unit 1 – Mission: Launching, is comprised of 143 pages, 12 60-minute lessons, real student writing samples, classroom posters and pintables, rubrics, checklists, and so much more. This unit will help any teacher launch and revolutionize their writing program. It doesn’t matter if you’re just starting your year, or 5 months in. All it takes a commitment to preserve a set time for writing and the willingness to shake things up a bit. Come on! We know how you middle school teachers like to rebel☺
In this unit you can expect to find lessons specifically introducing each of the three main text types [Narrative, Informative, and Argument/Opinion], as well as participate in our Six Traits Boot Camp. There are lessons on introducing revising and editing; complete with checklists and posters to add as valuable resources for your students. Lastly, there are two rubrics that accompany this unit. One rubric is our Comprehensive Teacher Rubric, which explicitly details and describes how to score student writing. The second rubric is for students. Self-assessment is the key to understanding your strengths (hits) and weaknesses (misses).
This one unit will by far surpass anyone’s expectations and any middle school writing program on the market today. A single unit from some of your ‘big name publishers’ can cost anywhere from $125-$200. Believe us, you won’t be getting ALL the materials you’ll get in one of our units.
