The 97-page curricula was designed and written by a classroom teacher who holds a Master’s in Education/Reading. Written autonomously, I wanted to combine all 3 curricula into one book since all 3 are included in the writing standards for the Common Core. Unlike any other curriculum, this one is uniquely set up like mini unit plans where all lesson planning is done and incorporated into the curriculum.
These curricula was designed for 7th-9th graders, but have found out through feedback from teachers that they work just as well for high school and freshmen college students. Lessons are scaffolded to incorporate academic vocabulary for each writing type and include the steps in the writing process beginning with an engaging launch, introduction, academic vocabulary, pre-writing, writing, revising, editing and publishing, reflection, and applied learning in each curriculum.
Take a moment to look through each table of contents to see the many resources included:
**academic vocabulary introduction and practice
**integrated and scaffolded to the writing stages
**hyperlinks to other resources
**classroom-ready PowerPoint presentations written as companions and available for free download through Slideshare.net,
and so much more!
