Have you ever had that student who is always done early? There are only so many times you can have him organize your library or her cut out sorts for you next class. What about the students who never seem to finish on time? They turn in their papers with embarrassed hesitation, never feeling that lovely sense of accomplishment.
Well look no further! This book answers the needs of all your students while helping you differentiate content curriculum. By using simple writing assignments you can help students increase all their reading comprehension skills while improving their writing skills. Every activity places students in the shoes of real life writers while encouraging them to complete writing tasks that authentically reflect real life.
These activities are so versatile they can be used in any middle school content class for any lesson. My suggestion is to tab the activities you love. Then when students ask you what to do or you see a struggling student who could get the lesson if it was only in a different format, you can direct them to this book. It is also a wonderful tool to show your administrators when they ask you how you differentiate or how you incorporate writing into your content class.
