Powerful Writing

Organized and Effective Writing

In an effort to improve our students' literacy skills, we are focusing on writing organized and effective paragraphs. This is a communication skill that students will need for success in high school, college and careers.

Students develop strong points, support claims with evidence, provide adequate analysis, and summarize their main topics. This will support students in their writing proficiency and oral communication skills.

In class, teachers are demonstrating effective writing examples and students are using scaffolds to organize their writing.
