Do you have students who won't write? Would you love to have a proven, engaging method to get even the most reluctant writers putting creative ideas across multiple pages?
Or do you have gifted writers who would benefit from the challenge of a collaborative writing process?
This unit has proven results with 3rd-6th grade students from regular classrooms and gifted pullout programs, and will engage your students in a fun but low-key writing process that is easily adaptable to different grade- and ability levels. Included are step-by-step directions that have been field-tested and tweaked by teachers other than the author, all forms needed, contingency plans for a variety of situations, and art tie-ins, as well as lessons that provide all of the background information necessary for students to be successful.
Applicable CCSS and NCTE Standards included.
