A Journey Through Expository Writing: Student Consumable Workbook


Every student deserves the opportunity to excel academically. Throughout these challenging times, the Jane Schaffer Academic Writing Program® continues to provide teachers with strategies that prepare students to succeed in academic settings. Our new student consumable workbook, A Journey Through Expository Writing: Student Workbook, allows flexibility for educators to guide student learning individually as a self-paced guide and/or collectively as a collaborative and cooperative learning activity. The workbook allows students to practice skills, strategies, and the writing process deepening their ability and their knowledge of expository writing. Each section of the workbook includes the following strategies: (1) a clear focus of the lesson; (2) overt instruction that engages students with examples, graphic organizers, questions, and multiple approaches to skill-based learning; (3) practice exercises that apply their knowledge; and (4) answer keys to provide feedback and to build students' self-efficacy. This student workbook has been developed over the past year, and we are excited about your having this resource in your classrooms!
