Standards-based lessons support the traits of good writing: ideas, organization, voice, word choice, sentence fluency, conventions, and presentation. The common thread that runs through the lessons is the use of a personalized Writer's Notebook. The author encourages each student to create and maintain a Writer's Notebook - a collection of cherished memories, stimulating conversations, thought-provoking ideas, colorful phrases, and helpful tips. Because the Writer's Notebook is never graded, it is a safe place for a student to experiment in the art of writing - testing new words, phrases, and styles. It becomes a personal reference book to enhance a student's writings.
This enhanced eBook gives you the freedom to copy and paste the content of each page into the format that fits your needs. You can post lessons on your class website, make student copies, and more.
