For our students to become better and more accurate writers

Product Use: I started out using the product as my writing curriculum in class. I then put it into a writing rotation during Daily 5 instead.

What Worked and What Didn't: At the beginning, the videos were not working, and the students struggled with the articles-it was confusing to have two articles that were the same, they didn't realize the question being asked was what was different. It was really hard for me as the teacher to differentiate the lessons for the different levels in my class. The articles were very difficult for some of my students to read. They were not receiving feedback immediately when it was given. The topics are hard to align with our Literacy curriculum.
I love the non-fiction piece as well as the information provided for the students to write an awesome full of text evidence piece. They really enjoy the topics that they are studying to write about.
