WriteShop Teacher's Manual for WriteShop I & WriteShop II
The WriteShop Teacher's Guide covers both WriteShop I & WriteShop II, and is contained within a soft cover with plastic coil binding (introduction, lesson plans, student writing samples, keys, appendixes, checklists, etc.). Lesson plan tracks are included, with writings on each schedule corresponding to subheadings in the lesson plan. Lessons include materials needed, the lesson focus, "before you begin" notes, pre-writing activities with checklist, practice paragraphs, brainstorming, sloppy copy notes, first revision notes, final draft notes, and grading notes. Other sections provide instructions on editing and evaluating, common errors for each lesson, mechanical problems, supplemental activities, evaluation checklists, and more.
While the student book is written directly to the student, the teacher's guide is still needed to teach the course, as the teacher's guide contains the teacher-specific instructions, keys, and evaluation notes. Copying and Dictation exercises may be assigned by the parent, or there is a sold-separately Copying and Dictation for WriteShop I booklet available.
4th Edition. Recommended for the average student in grade 7-10, or a bright 5th or 6th grader who's working with a parent; average 5th or 6th grade students may also spread the course out over two years. At the pace of one lesson in two weeks, students will finish both WriteShop I & II in two years.
