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.
The Writing Interactively program consists of 4 modules: Informative Texts for Grades 3–4, Informative Texts for Grades 5–6, Persuasive Texts for Grades 3–4, and Persuasive Texts for Grades 5–6.
Your students will learn to write effectively for a variety of audiences and purposes as they explore these text types:
The Informative Texts and Persuasive Texts modules each also include an extensive, hands-on Writer's Toolkit. These stand-alone units are designed to be used alongside the other text-type units within a module.
The Informative and Persuasive Writer's Toolkits provide in-depth coverage for the five steps of the writing process:
