The entire Power of Words Writing Method is my attempt at taking the magic and mystery out of writing for the math-minded kids and providing much needed focus and structure for the incredibly artistic (read: flighty.) It is plug-and-play, and anyone can use it.
That said, this specific set is a simplified outline for non-writers or nearly non-writers who are really struggling. In my home state of Florida, our writers are scored on a 10-point scale. This is given to my students who scored between 0-4, and maybe a 5 in very special circumstances. This outline and fill-in will give your struggling students confidence. Some will live here, and some will progress. Then you can add in pieces from the larger standard POWW outline. Even if your struggling writers never get past here, there is no shame in taking a Level 0 writer to a Level 4!
