Writing Fundamentals

Overview

Writing Fundamentals improves students’ writing by providing explicit standards-aligned instruction that focuses on why writers write and how writers effectively communicate ideas and information. Writing Fundamentals empowers teachers to establish a predictable classroom routine where students take ownership of their writing, share work with peers, and learn to plan, revise, and edit their writing.
