This new, highly specialized writing intervention series targets middle school students with learning differences who have not been successful in conventional language arts programs. The series' step-by-step approach builds writing competency from the ground up - students learn to edit, format, and build paragraphs while mastering 4 basic writing strands required in regular English and content area classes and standards-based state tests. By the end of the book, students are writing complete essays. Lively writing, illustrations, and a systematic approach make this series easy to teach and to use.

Book 1: Writing the How-to Paragraph uses the FNTF formula (First..., Next..., Then..., Finally...) to introduce students to basic, four-sentence paragraph writing. From there, students learn how to expand their paragraphs with more details and eventually write multiparagraph essays. Throughout, they are given practice with editing marks, encouraged to use graphic organizers, and provided with ample opportunities to practice new skills. Each lesson ends with a review section, a quiz, and paragraph writing assignments. Grades 5-8.

Book 2 begins with a review of the editing marks and concepts learned in Book1. Students then continue to use the FNTF formula, this time to write narrative paragraphs. They explore the difference between fact and fiction, learn alternatives to the FNTF words, add dialogue to their writing, and are presented with openers and closers. New editing marks are presented, and the use of graphic organizers is continued. Two lessons deal with easily confused words and common errors. In the final lesson, students write a multiparagraph story. Each lesson ends with a review section, quiz, and paragraph writing assignments. Grades 5-8.
