This collection of writing lessons is just what teachers need to help them meet the language arts standards while teaching important content. Students write poetry, study vocabulary, use graphic organizers, prepare summaries, write for authentic purpose (editorials, persuasive letters, speeches), and so much more! As they write about content-area topics, they gain experience studying nonfiction and practice important language arts skills at the same time. A great way to integrate the curriculum! Includes a complete integrated social studies unit.
