An excellent resource for differentiating writing instruction in the classroom, the Writing Skills Teacher’s Handbook explains how to teach writing through explicit instruction, models, and samples of student writing at various stages. Also includes cross-curricular applications, writing prompts, and discussion of state and national writing assessments.
Special sections in spelling, handwriting, and keyboarding help build fluency and confidence in young and struggling writers. Can be used without the student books as an excellent professional resource or with Writing Skills student books to practice skills addressed in grades 2–12.
