Writing Interactively makes it easy to deliver high-quality, high-interest writing instruction. Step-by-step lessons guide students through a variety of text types—from introducing them to the text type's purpose and features through writing their own piece. Annotated text examples and hands-on activities throughout the lessons keep students involved and excited.

  • Harness the motivating power of technology—the modules were developed to be compatible with all interactive whiteboards and Flash-compatible computers.
  • Teach grammar in an interesting and functional context, while showing students how to properly use language for clear and effective communication.
  • Help students internalize the steps of the writing process and learn the Six Traits of Good Writing.
Program Organization
