  • A partnership with The Writers’ Express, a non-profit organization committed to improving students’ literacy skills, creates a new, research-based instructional model for teaching writing.
  • Strategies include selected skills demonstrated to make the greatest impact on student achievement, sequenced skill instruction to drive progress, and integrated instruction to teach students expressive and technical skills.
  • The program accelerates students’ writing and reading growth by teaching selected skills that have the most impact on writing first, providing the kinds of feedback on writing assignments that will make a difference.
