Design innovative and engaging lessons and units that produce measurable gains!

This clever new resource takes the reader step-by-step through the curriculum design process: from identifying national and local standards and translating them into user-friendly language to crafting meaningful writing assignments and assessments that effectively reveal student strengths and weaknesses.

Rooted in the six-traits model of instruction and assessment and illuminated by relevant classroom examples, Glass′s four-part process shows teachers how to:

  • Identify grade-level content standards for writing
  • Create a teacher rubric with a clear set of criteria for writing assessment
  • Craft a student checklist that guides students through the unit and prepares them for teacher expectations
  • Design lessons that help students achieve success

Replete with tools, strategies, examples and reproducibles, Curriculum Design for Writing Instruction is a valuable resource for any teacher who wants to boost student achievement in writing for any subject and for any grade level!
