Highlight Your Writing is a unique program that allows students to interact with writing in a kinesthetic and visual way. By using the color-coding system, the action of highlighting easily illustrates the writings strengths and weaknesses. Students are able to scaffold through the process to allow themselves to develop their writing process until they exceed the standards.
This program has been used by thousands of students with great success. Schools have seen their passing rates and exceed rates soar. Your students can find success too!
The Basic Package contains:A quick start guide with step by step instructions/ a 27 slide PowerPoint to explain the details of the writing program, and how to use the highlighters/ A sample black & white 5 paragraph essay, in all stages from Not Meeting Standards, Meets, and Exceeds Standards for highlighting practice. The same sample essays, but with the highlighting key/ A basic scoring rubric/ 4 practice writing prompts- 2 expository and 2 persuasive/ A practice activity for using specific sentences.
Please keep in mind the key supplies for Highlight Your Writing are the three colors of highlighters: blue, pink, and green. Each student will need all three colors to move through the process.
