PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Writers tend to do better when they write for readers, and to see their essays in print adds a level of motivation to edit that final copy.

HIT HERE FOR VIDEO DESCRIPTION OF THIS PRODUCT

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 – so that you can exchange the external publication component for a student-led class celebration of publication at the end. In this celebration students share their final draft with invited guests. Either way essays are written for a real audience, and are edited for authentic publication.

Included in these materials you will find the following guides:
