Each lesson describes Carol’s teaching moves and language and includes suggestions on pacing the lesson, setting students up for success, organizing flexible groups, and troubleshooting common classroom management problems.

Through its five writing units Come to Class offers a systematic method for teaching the various types of writing.

 

Writing to Explain highlights the relationship between writers and readers and helps students explain themselves clearly, convincingly, and cohesively.

 

Writing to Persuade focuses on persuasive writing and, using a wide variety of literary and rhetorical examples, demonstrates how teachers can help students craft effective essays.

 

Writing About Literature offers novel methods for helping students write both analytically and insightfully about poetry, plays, short stories, novels, and literary nonfiction.

 

Narrative Writing teaches students how to use the features of fiction—anecdote, dialogue, setting, tone—to tell stories and to enliven analytical essays.

 

Reflective Writing invites students to explore important issues in personal essays that go beyond simple autobiography and use personal experience as a springboard for analysis.

 

Each unit contains an opening essay, seven lessons, and the texts, templates, and rubrics that students need to successfully compose a specific type of writing. By the end of each unit, students will have planned, drafted, revised, edited, and assessed a finished essay or story.
