We designed our Illuminated Writing Kit to help teachers navigate the complexities of teaching writing to students of all ages using Writer’s Workshop. The kit is comprised of a collection of strong, relevant mini-lessons crafted to target writing skills in the 3 types of writing as well as Response to Text. Each mini-lesson is created to make the most of precious instructional time while giving student writers the chance to engage in writing every day! To further aid in lesson planning, we organized the mini-lessons for each writing type into a logical series of standards progression. This kit makes it easy for teachers to implement daily writing practice and meet each student’s needs, without any boring repetition!
