Overview - REAL-WORLD WRITING BINDERS 1 & 2
Newly revised, Real-World Writing has been expanded to two reproducible binders full of everyday writing activities. Students practice basic writing skills and learn strategies for dealing with writing found in day-to-day life, including how to complete job applications, compose e-mails, create cover letters and resumes, write thank-you notes, keep a journal, maintain a blog, and draft reports. Activity sheets use realistic print found in everyday life.
Each unit begins with a lesson plan that includes unit objectives, teaching strategies, and plans for incorporating extension activities and assessment into the unit.
Numerous activity sheets follow each lesson plan, allowing for extensive individual practice. Activity sheets feature realistic graphics that are identical to print seen in the real world.
Unit assessments measure student learning. Includes matching, short answer, multiple choice, true/false, and fill-in-the-blank questions.
