Feedback from a buyer:

“Homeschooling teens who do not like writing! Love this!” – Buyer

All standards for 6th-8th are included. The only difference with this resource from the separate grade-level resources is that it contains standards from all three grades. This resource is great for those who teach multiple grade levels.

Every lesson builds upon the previous skill within one piece of writing. This provides students with a thorough understanding of how to put a quality piece of writing together. It helps even the most reluctant writers improve their writing. A study shows that 98% of two classes using the program scored in the exceptional range on state testing.

Do you have limited time for writing instruction? Do you want 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 in place of the interactive pages, then have time for students to write their own stories!

What happens if you don’t have confidence in teaching writing?

Pam has 26 years of teaching experience, a Masters Degree and National Board Certification. She currently works on curriculum and serves as a writing coach. She created this all-inclusive STEP-BY-STEP writing program to share her SECRET TO WRITING SUCCESS. She is active in a FREE exclusive Facebook Group to anyone with this writing program. It will guide and support you through a year of writing. If you are interested in detailed training, she also offers ONLINE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT.
