Being a Writer
K-5 Writing Curriculum

Following a pilot study during the 2012-2013 school year, we began full implementation of Being a Writer in September for all K-5 students. Being a Writer is a framework for teaching writing workshop. It exhibits strong Common Core alignment, reinforces our Code of Conduct and uses quality trade books to inspire student writing. There has been a wonderful response from the students and teachers involved in Being a Writer. Teachers find students are willing and able to write for longer periods of time and with greater detail. They love the classroom management and ethical components taught in the program as well. There is a sense of accomplishment as you enter into these classrooms. The teachers are providing students with quality tools and instruction that inspire and motivate these young writers.
