Product Description
This writing bundle contains everything I use for writing throughout the year with my freshmen and sophomores. The preview contains a detailed map for using all of these products, which I have created to address different learners and needs.

While creating these writing activities, I kept the overarching idea in mind that students can and should take responsibility in for their learning and writing. Many points throughout these activities, I ask students to reflect and take ownership of the writing process - something important for older students.

All of the contents of this bundle are in my store separately (listed below), but this bundle contains the outline for using the materials and all the materials at a discounted price.

Writing Expectations Power Point:
* Expectations for revising and editing papers - and applying teacher comments.
* Specific paper problems such as wordiness, incomplete thoughts, cliches, etc.
* Definitions, examples, and expectations for brainstorming, introductions, topic sentences, thesis statements, conclusions, focus, organization, voice, conventions, transitions, style, and more.

High School Writing Prompts

Improve Student Writing: Overused Words, Sentence Structure, and More
As students continue with writing, show them small but meaningful ways to improve their writing.

Common Writing Errors
Specifically, this writing error bundle provides explanations of different problems along with practice sentences: run-on sentences, comma splices, fragments, wordiness, comma placement with introductory elements, misplaced modifiers, and dangling modifiers.

Secondary Student Writing: Brainstorming, Outlining, and More
Get students on the path to success with these activities that cover basics.

MLA Research Rubrics (editable) and Writing Cards
These rubrics are editable because everyone has slightly different wording. You may also print and use them.

Eliminate Linking Verbs from Secondary Student Writing
Students may struggle with thinking of strong verbs. For students who repeat is, am, are, was, were... this activity is for them.

Editing and Revising Activities Bundle for Secondary Students
Differentiate with this! I typically use stations for students, but partner and individual practice will work too.

Stop Writing Cliches!
Provide students with a method for improving their descriptions while eliminating common cliches.

I use all of these activities with my high school students throughout the school year. Because there are so many, you will be able to differentiate and personalize.

Everything in this writing unit is in my store separately, but this writing bundle contains it all for a discounted price. I typically use this information with my freshmen and sophomores, but I have used it with advanced eighth graders and pieces of it with my juniors and seniors.
