This book was designed to provide everything you’ll need to teach informational/expository and response to text writing in Grade 8 and promotes a powerful reading/writing connection. With this new guide, while we’ve kept all of the foundational skills necessary for all aspects of expository and informative writing, we’ve added many new lessons that apply these skills to response to text, literary analysis and research simulation tasks. In addition, we’ve broken down writing in response to text into a series of manageable skills that students can practice discretely, master, and apply effectively to authentic responsive writing assignments. Also, these new grade-level specific guides make planning and pacing instruction that much easier.

Applying informational/expository writing skills to the kinds of responsive writing challenges on the latest national and state assessments makes this resource exceedingly valuable. Anyone interested in meeting 21st century writing standards will want to have this new resource.

Student pages are available in English only for print and projection, and accessible through a digital link provided in the guide.
