Sally Wright
This is an amazing book. The organization and pace of this class also kept me focused on the end game - - improving my students' writing. This is a game changer for me and will change the way I teach writing to my 2nd graders.
Patricia Wallen
Best PD I have had in a very long time. Easy to implement in my 1st grade class. It has changed how I teach writing in a very sequential and manageable manner. Very supportive format.
