AN ENTIRE YEARS WORTH OF WRITING!
The purpose of this product is to make your students more proficient writers through practice and repetition.
This product was constructed with the thought of backward design–What do we want these students to be able to accomplish at the end of this product? The answer: We want our students to be independent, strong, and proficient writers.
Each mini-unit begins with an engaging article, followed by weekly scaffolding activities. Week one consists of activities on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday; while week two activities are assigned on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, with a complete paragraph at the end of each unit. In addition, an easy rubric is included, that allows students to peer grade, or the teacher can use it as an assessment, writing grade, or benchmark.

“Building” Great Writers
Over the past 15 years of teaching, I have worked diligently and rigorously on planning a unit that covers and builds students’ skills in writing. In the past, my students have struggled to write an introduction, as well as a conclusion; in addition, they have a hard time lengthening their sentences to sound more fluid and refined.
My colleagues have also asked me for some skill practice in writing for other disciplines, and sometimes they will borrow my dittoes to use in their classes. Therefore, I really created this unit for everyone and every discipline.
Included in this bundle is:
*10 2-day lessons ( plus 4 mini-lessons) from the foundations of writing to the final assessment.
The 10 lessons are:
1. Starting with the Foundation-What do we know?
