Scaffolding through the writing process is an effective and successful approach to teaching writing. Every lesson builds upon the previous skill within one piece of writing. This gives students a thorough understanding of how to put a quality piece of writing together. It helps even the most reluctant writers become ROCKSTAR WRITERS®! A study shows that 98% of two classes using the program scored in the exceptional range on state testing. You can find it on the ★ BEST SELLER ★ list too!

This resource is packed with ways to MOTIVATE-EDUCATE-DIFFERENTIATE! You will find your students engaged, have already prepped and modeled lessons for explicit teaching, and receive jammin’ ideas for differentiation.

Do you have limited time for writing instruction? Would you like to use this program without the interactive pages?

No problem! This program is flexible! You can teach the lessons, print off the mini anchor charts to put in student notebooks instead of the interactive pages, and then have time for students to write their own stories!

What happens if you need more confidence in teaching writing?
