Write Your Way

Curriculum that Invites Students to Write with Authentic Purpose

Spark the power and joy of writing with these flexible, stackable weekly units designed to engage students in four authentic purposes for writing. Students will write to reflect, write to connect, write to create, and write to make change. Revision strategies and student mentor texts included. Available for grades K-12.


Sparks are innovative, adaptable mini-lessons and activities. They help hone a specific skill or inspire big ideas.
