Write On!

Write On! has been developed to encourage writing in practical and positive applications while supporting creativity. The intended audience is out-of-school youth looking to strengthen their writing skills for personal growth, as well as anyone considering entering a high school equivalency preparation program. The fifteen (15) lessons are non-sequential and written at an accessible reading level. A student works semi-independently on each lesson with the assistance or oversight of a mentor. The lessons are designed to be completed in approximately 45 minutes. Each lesson addresses at least two concepts of the Six Trait Writing model. Each lesson also meets various standards of the Common Core Curriculum ELA Writing benchmarks.
