Let’s face it; tests are always changing, and those changes make our heads spin. But the fact remains (and we all know this) that close reading and academic writing skills help students to become academically and culturally sound.

The goal of the STAAR® training is to provide teachers with strategies, models, and graphic organizers to present to their students with the results being improved writing and reading skills and scores.

Teachers receive step-by-step instructions on our proven approach to teaching the brainstorming, planning, thinking, and writing process that results in high scores on the 26-line Expository and Persuasive essays.
