Elementary Response to Literature
It's finally here, a 158-page Response to Literature Writing Guide for Elementary Education teachers. Terminology has been modified for elementary students, and our models include Cinderella, Tuck Everlasting, "To Sleep Under the Stars," "Both Sides of the Fence," Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry; and Harry Potter. The standards-based curriculum guide demonstrates alignment with both the Common Core State Standards and the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). The scaffolding of skills includes Jane’s prewriting strategies, student-centered terminology, color-coding, and Web-off-the-Word™, Jane's breakthrough approach to commentary and vocabulary development. From terminology to final draft essays, this guide is designed to assist the English language arts teacher with strategies and techniques that yield successful writers.
