A Writing Process for All

By on March 8, 2016

LiteracyTA provides a writing framework (or process) that helps teachers teach argumentative, informative, and narrative writing. For each step in the process, teachers have access to practical activities and support resources like writing plans, templates, sentence starters, and verb lists. When the writing is done, LiteracyTA offers a comprehensive approach to peer review. Literacy cares about developing independent students who can think and solve problems on their own. This is why peer review is so important to us and to your students. This year, make peer review a focus of your writing program. 

All of our resources in our Writing Center support the teaching of state literacy standards for writing. From graphic organizers to kid friendly rubrics, we have what classroom teachers need. Our skills and activities are vertically aligned, grades K-12, and offer classroom-ready presentations that teachers can use immediately!

We are teachers helping teachers teach writing! Lean on us. We are your support.

Literacy Standards In Action

We've mapped our literacy lessons and reading, speaking, and writing skills to state standards, Common Core, and NGSS. The standards are "the what" to teach. Our lessons are "the how" to meet the expectations defined by the standards. Click on the links below to view our quick reference table that maps standards to literacy lessons.
