Do not start the school year or testing season without Word Nerd: An Intensive Writing Practice. Word Nerd is a game changing intensive writing practice that will raise student standardized test reading and writing scores.
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.
Therefore, becoming a proficient writer ensures your students are engaged in the text on a deeper level. It also increases their vocabulary with a rigorous daily immersion in the writing process which not only increases student knowledge but also ensures students can articulate their thoughts in a more critical manner.
Students receive so much outside stimulus every day, Word Nerd allows them a quiet moment to stop, breathe, and practice succinctly articulating their thoughts on various subject matter.
Word Nerd is a 180 day Intensive Writing practice to be used as a supplement in primary, middle grades, Intensive Reading and Writing, English and English as a Second Language classes. It will also greatly benefit those who cannot pass their high school exit exams. Since Word Nerd becomes in effect a portfolio of writing samples it makes it easier to both document and diagnose deficient writing skills and correct them.
Word Nerd is a common core aligned with the 11th and 12th grade utilizing both common core and SAT vocabulary. Word Nerd is a small solution to a big problem. You cannot teach Intensive Reading without teaching Intensive Writing because that is only 50% of the equation.
