This free downloadable manual provides administrators and teachers with a schoolwide tool for articulation, assessment benchmarks, and planning utilizing Nancy Fetzer’s Writing Curriculum. Separate chapters in this manual cover the different writing genres: narrative, informative/explanatory, and opinion/argumentative. Each of these chapters begin with at-a-glance pages that display the organizers, brief descriptions, and suggested stages of writing matched to grade-levels. Also included in each of the genre chapters are detailed descriptions of the different writing stages. Each of these stages come with descriptors of the characteristics of good writing: Content and Organization, Sentences, and Mechanics. Along with these descriptors are exemplar organizers and writing samples. Utilize these pages to assess student writing, and determine teaching points for writing lessons.
