Build an awesome writer community in class!
Or adjust these guides to improve writing completed by one author only. The unit of 7 complete write-to-publish lessons includes actual markets to submit final essays for publication. Students are guided from an idea to publication in fun step-by-step tasks that engage both sides of their brains. Times are suggested for all parts of the lessons – yet times are flexible for differentiated learning.
Find flexibility here too
