This new, highly specialized writing intervention series targets middle school students with learning differences who have not been successful in conventional language arts programs. The series' step-by-step approach builds writing competency from the ground up - students learn to edit, format, and build paragraphs while mastering 4 basic writing strands required in regular English and content area classes and standards-based state tests. By the end of the book, students are writing complete essays. Lively writing, illustrations, and a systematic approach make this series easy to teach and to use.
Book 1: Writing the How-to Paragraph uses the FNTF formula (First..., Next..., Then..., Finally...) to introduce students to basic, four-sentence paragraph writing. From there, students learn how to expand their paragraphs with more details and eventually write multiparagraph essays. Throughout, they are given practice with editing marks, encouraged to use graphic organizers, and provided with ample opportunities to practice new skills. Each lesson ends with a review section, a quiz, and paragraph writing assignments. Grades 5-8.
