Is your classroom a place where students love writing?
The Being a Writer program is a yearlong writing curriculum for grades K--6 that combines two decades of research in the areas of writing, motivation, and learning theory with social and ethical development.
The program has two goals: to develop the creativity and skills of a writer, and to develop the social and ethical values of a responsible person. It uses high-quality trade books for genre immersion and author studies, and easy-to-teach mini-lessons to reinforce the skills and conventions taught in the program. Writing instruction, regular community-building elements, and guided partner work are integrated to develop in students a sense of autonomy, belonging, and competence.
