Weekly lessons are broken down into multiple stages, including a mini-lesson, writing practice time, and sharing time. Each lesson includes a standard, materials needed, "mentor texts," procedure notes, teaching instructions with semi-scripted questions, assignments, homework ideas, and reproducibles.
