Good writing skills don't just happen; they develop bit by bit over an extended time. These writing workbooks from Shell Education provide practice, assessment and diagnostics to strengthen writing skills. The workbooks take a formative assessment approach, using data from assessment to adjust teaching to directly meet students' needs. The lessons are in two-week formats and theme-centered. Each day of the first week, students interact with and learn from mentor texts. Analysis activities are varied and build reading comprehension as well as writing analysis. During the second week, students practice the writing process steps to write passages of their own. Each day of the week works on a different step of the writing process in order: prewriting, drafting, revising, editing and publishing. The included Digital Resource CD duplicates the workbook's teacher resources (rubrics, writing analysis pages, writing signs and standards charts) and the student resources (practice pages; writing tips and prompts; writing process and editing marks handouts and peer editing checklist). Correlates to state standards. Consumable but also reproducible and includes an answer key and a grade-level Digital Resource CD. 216 pp, sc. ~ Ruth
