Here’s what teachers are saying:

✏️ "I've been using this for several weeks with 6th-8th grades. I wish I had started earlier in the school year. Students are getting faster and more confident with their writing skills with each passing week!" -Vicky S.

✏️ "This is an essential to my writing curriculum. This is designed perfectly for ELs or struggling writers. It is easy to follow and scaffolds students throughout the writing process. The topics are engaging to keep students interested, but the activity also provides enough structure to give students solid practice in proper paragraph technique. I felt like my students multi-paragraph writings improved because they now have strong individual paragraphs." -Katie F.

✏️ "I taught my students about writing paragraphs using this resource. The topics are great, and students get easily engaged because it is all about them. The rubrics are easy to use, and students get to help each other by editing and revising each other's work. I also used it in distance learning with the same results." -Ava A.
