The Resources for Teaching Writing CD-ROM provides print and video resources to support your teaching over the course of the year. Homework options and Tailoring Your Teaching strategies extend each session with alternative minilessons for you and your students. The instructional charts from each session can be easily modified and included in each student's writer's notebook. Customizable letters home describe each unit of study and communicate to parents the important work students are doing. You'll find student writing samples, rubrics, checklists and other supplementary materials, organized by unit. Plus, video clips allow you to watch Lucy teach and confer with students.
