From fluency and language use to academic and social writing, Writing Power brings multiple writing skills together to give students practical skills for many different situations. Units are created around a central topic or theme, guiding students through the complete writing process.
- Writing Power Blog supports and supplements in-class practice. Teachers can log on and set up a private class blog. Students can post writing assignments and communicate with classmates.
- Flexible structure allows teachers to concurrently assign work from various sections.
- Exercises targeting both accuracy and fluency give students the ability to express themselves in effective and interesting ways.
- Writing tasks at the end of each unit encourage students to synthesize all the skills they have learned.
- An online Teacher’s Guide contains the answer key, a rationale for the approach taken, suggestions for using the textbook in class, and a sample syllabus.
