All Write was written to help middle-school students “catch up” and move ahead, whether English is their first or second language. The Handbook is very user-friendly and contains clear guidelines, models, checklists, illustrations, and tips designed to meet the needs of your students. Here are just some of the highlights you’ll find in All Write!
- Carefully chosen student essays, narratives, and arguments will help students improve their writing skills by “modeling” what other students have written.
- Clearly stated explanations and guidelines will help your students master a variety of classroom skills—from listening to note-taking to test-taking, from study-reading to thinking to speaking.
- Thoughtfully planned chapters will help students improve their writing, thinking, and communication skills in all subject areas: science, social studies, and math.
A free online teacher's guide provides teaching suggestions, models, minilessons, topic ideas, videos, digital downloads, and much more. It correlates every page of All Write to the Common Core State Standards.
Also, make sure to check out the All Write SkillsBook, which features 215 pages of activities, minilessons, and daily language workouts to your help students improve their punctuation, grammar, mechanics, usage, and spelling. And for even more practice with the conventions of language, you can also order the Write on Course 20-20 SkillsBooks for Grade 6, Grade 7, and Grade 8, which are fully cross-referenced to All Write.
From the creators of the effective Write Source Program, Thoughtful Learning’s K-12 Writing prioritizes the building of strong writers from kindergarten through adulthood. Teaching the process and traits of writing, major modes, listening and speaking, studying and test taking, students will understand and apply the writing process at all levels through this cohesive spiral program. Grammar, usage, and mechanics are integrated with writing instruction. Applying writing skills across the curriculum includes assignments that use the various writing forms to major content areas (taking notes, summarizing/paraphrasing, learning logs). Multimedia reports, email communications, planning personal websites, and citing electronic sources are integrated with more traditional writing experiences. Extensive coverage and well-developed evaluation rubrics based on the six traits of writing are part of the revising/editing process. Worth mentioning, there are occasional references to classroom activities, although most of these can easily be done in a homeschool setting.
Colorfully illustrated, the 6.5” x 9” Student Handbooks provide user friendly lessons, visually appealing information, and an emphasis on self-review. The comprehensive online Teacher Guide is available at the publisher’s website. The Teacher Guide includes the scope and sequence, yearlong timetable, getting-started activities, lesson plans, assessment supports, downloadable activities, lesson specific mini lessons and more. Parents and Teachers will appreciate the lesson correlations CCSS, TEKS, and LAFS.
Recommended but optional, the SkillsBooks provide systematic grammar, usage, and mechanics practice at each grade level. The SkillsBook Teacher’s Edition includes full size student pages with answers (if indicated). No additional teaching instruction included. Grade level courses are available as well as All Write, a remedial ELA program that enables middle school students to catch up before high school.
