Schoolwide Strategy and System for Writing: This product provides the individual secondary teacher or, ideally, the entire secondary teaching staff, with a "how-to" strategy for developing student writing skills across the curriculum. This compilation of ready-to-use explanations, exercises, checklists, and grading sheets provides the tools to target recurring writing roadblocks, supporting and elevating writing in your content area.
This cross-curricular approach begins with setting down reasonable, feasible writing protocol for routine textbook Q&A assignments; establishing Basic Manuscript expectations for all written assignments; breaking down the essential, and often illusive, components of writing (thesis, paragraph development, etc) with practice exercises and targeted tools. Ready-to-go exercises, checklists, grading sheets, and simple explanations support any teacher in regaining and supporting written expression as it functions in their content area. Sanity for the teacher, Skills for the student, Support for the Language Arts Dept, and Success for testing.
