This session is a description of the 5th grade writing program, Writing With Skill by Dr. Susan Wise Bauer. This program is a continuation of the Writing With Ease series begun in Grammar School. We will describe the curriculum components and expectations of students during class time and on school-at- home days with emphasis on those areas of WWS that differ from WWE. A thorough explanation of books, organizational materials, and resources will be covered as well. We will also spend valuable time looking at the Teacher’s Edition and how best to use it at home. This session is HIGHLY recommended for all incoming 5th grade co-teachers.
