CSRA RESA dedicates this writing website to all teachers who must each day find ways to mold students into writers. This task is not easy, not quick, and not prescriptive. Each child brings his or her background, experiences, passion, and voice into expressing written thought. Every teacher, regardless of content expertise, must promote the thinking, the skills, the strategies, the reading, and the opportunity behind the art of writing.
Throughout this website, teachers can explore ideas to assist them in their writing instruction. They will find standards and glossaries, model learning targets, sample rubrics, sample prompts, extended lessons, and focused power lessons.
Throughout the next two years, the writing consultants will add new materials. We welcome your feedback and guidance as we build this writing resource. Our goal is to have a one-stop writing resource.
These documents are models that a teacher may use as is or change according to grade level, need, or purpose.
