How many times have you asked your students to write and their response was, "I can't think of anything!" After years of teaching, experience has taught me that students need "guided thinking" during written assignments. Eliminate the time they spend thinking and get on with The Write Approach.
The Write Approach curriculum guides students through the writing process using topics of interest that students can relate and respond to.
The Write Approach curriculum includes:
-easy to understand directions for writing
-formal steps of the writing process. (plan, draft, revise, edit and publish)
-reference pages for students to refer to while writing
-graphic organizers to help with the planning stage
-student writing checklists
-grading rubrics to assess students' writings
Students will participate in writing:
-Narratives and Self Expression (Book One)
-Friendly Letters (Book Two)
-Persuasive, Expository and Informative Texts (Book Three)
-Short Poems (Book Four)
-A cumulative review of all writings (Book Five)
The Write Approach Book Three includes:
-Teacher notes and instructions
-Defined vocabulary terms to display as posters
-Persuasive Writing Stems
-Four different persuasive writing topics
-Time Order Words (Poster)
-Three expository/procedural topics of interest
The Write Approach is user friendly, appealing to students, cumulative, creative and a great way to cover all areas of writing.
