Step Up to Writing® Fourth Edition creates a common writing language across all grade levels as the skills taught progress within and across the four grade bands. Using a flexible yet comprehensive instructional approach, Step Up to Writing can be implemented as a stand-alone or as a supplement to any core language arts program.
The instructional sequence is designed to support all students in becoming independent writers who write with increasing sophistication.
10 Sections: Building the Foundation, Growing Results
The 10 sections of Step Up to Writing are organized into strategies to introduce writing (sections 1, 2, and 3) and strategies to teach the text types and purposes of writing (sections 4–10).
