    Real-world writing happens when there is a reason to write. Help students explore real-world purposes for writing with activities that demonstrate thoughtful and effective writing strategies. 


    The real-world topics are designed to fit seamlessly into any writing program and include letters, journal entries, product opinions, advertisements, directions, interviews, and more!


    Units are designed to fit into a weekly lesson plan and include:

    A teacher overview page that describes the purpose of the format and how to introduce it

    A writing sample to model each skill

    A graphic organizer to organize and plan prewriting

    Two writing tasks with  response pages to practice each format

    An extension activity that prompts students to relate the writing to their own lives
