Description

"I heard of this resources from a teacher friend who had so many good things to say about it! I took a look at the work her students had done with it and decided right then and there that I needed it! I'm so excited for this resources and I know my students will be too. They love interactive notebooks - as do I!"

These units are from our signature STEP-BY-STEP WRITING® with INTERACTIVE NOTEBOOKS. It is a COMPLETE WRITER'S WORKSHOP PROGRAM with all the tools needed for the entire year. It is filled with engaging lessons (scripted), anchor charts, modeling, mentor text, interactive notebook pages, practice, and all the forms, graphic organizers, checklists, and rubrics necessary to teach and assess writing.

Scaffolding through the writing process continues to be an effective and successful approach to teach writing. Every lesson builds upon the previous skill within one piece of writing. This provides students with a thorough understanding of how to put a quality piece of writing together. It helps even the most reluctant writers beome ROCKSTAR WRITERS! A study shows that 98% of two classes using the program scored in the exceptional range on state testing. You can find it on the ★ BEST SELLER ★ list too!

This resource is packed with ways to MOTIVATE-EDUCATE-DIFFERENTIATE! You will find your students engaged, have already prepped and modeled lessons for explicit teaching, and receive jammin' ideas for differentiation.

What teachers are buzzing about:

"My students are learning at a fast pace! They love writing class, it's the subject they are all active in and participating!" -Maureen

"Exactly what I have been looking for! Step-by-step development of the writing process--for EACH type of writing. I just don't have time to develop it myself. Thanks for coming to my rescue!" -Jeanette

"Wow--this is an incredible resource! Definitely worth every bit of the money you spend. It incorporates everything you might need to introduce in teaching writing for upper grades/middle school!"


What is the difference in this resource opposed to the specific grade level bundles?

This version is ideal for those who teach multiple grade levels. All standards for 6th-8th are included.

Do you have limited time for writing instruction? Do you want to use this program without the interactive pages?

No problem! This program is flexible! You can teach the lessons, print off the mini anchor charts to put in student notebooks in place of the interactive pages, then have time for students to write their own stories!

What happens if you don't have confidence in teaching writing?
