Start a writing revolution in your schools! Word Nerd is a cutting edge workbook for students that will raise their standardized test reading and writing scores. Although Word Nerd seems simple it is a well-researched effective workhorse of a writing practice.
Word Nerd is a proactive preventive measure meant to be used as a scaffold to increase writing proficiency, vocabulary and as a consequence reading comprehension. Studies show there is a direct correlation between reading and writing. Word Nerd is a powerful Intensive Writing Practice to be used as a classroom bell ringer to supplement ELA/Reading curriculum in primary, middle grades, Intensive Reading and Writing, English and English as a Second Language classes. It will also greatly benefit those who have difficulty passing their high school exit exams. Since Word Nerd becomes in effect a portfolio of writing samples it becomes easier to both document and diagnose deficient writing skills and correct them. Remember writing is a practice and we need to get back to treating it as such in our classrooms.
