These documents are designed for applying to ALL writing in
general and are not specific to the writing strands:
Opinion/Argument, Informative/Explanatory, or Narrative.
Teacher and student tools specific to Opinion/Argument,
Informative/Explanatory, or Narrative Writing are listed under
those categories. These categories also contain “Together is
Better” Handbooks that contain many of the mini-lessons listed
If you would like any of these tools modified for your school or
district, or would like to have Charlotte Knox help you with your
writing plan or writing strategies, please contact us!
These are handbooks and mini-lessons as well as charts and forms
for use in teaching the writing process. These are not
specific to genre or strand of writing but comprise the steps to
teaching all writing including: how to plan, write, edit and
revise writing, and how to use anchor papers and feedback in
teaching and assessing writing.
Many of these tools are incorporated in the “Together is Better”
Handbooks under Opinion/Argument, Informative/Explanatory and
Narrative Writing Sections.
