    Using the direct-instruction method, High-Performance Writing addresses the writing instruction needs of all students including special education and ESL students.Each unit follows a sequence of instruction and contains a complete sequence of activities to achieve a particular piece of writing.

    • Units built around specific topics address the writing genre frequently identified in state frameworks, allowing you to target grade-appropriate writing skills.
    • Straightforward lessons provide the scaffolding students need to internalize the writing process and emerge as independent writers.
    • Writing and revising strategies help students incorporate the six traits of effective writing.
