Merit Question and Answer
Ideas to Review Writing Skills?

QUESTION:

Area of Concern: Process Writing

Submitted by: Teacher

Grade Level: Elementary School

Competency: Below Level

On our state test my students scored very low in the writing section. I’ve been reviewing writing techniques with them, but clearly I need to do more. Any ideas about what I can do to help with them?

 

ANSWER:

We’ve helped many students improve their writing skills.

Our best programs for this purpose are Paragraph Punch and Starter Paragraph Punch. In each program students choose from a menu of topics, develop an idea, and create their own original work. Students are guided through the complete writing process: pre-writing, writing, organizing, revising, editing and publishing.

With Starter Paragraph Punch students learn to write a basic paragraph developed through reason, detail, example, and sequence. Paragraph Punch is for older students and covers the same concepts plus cause and effect writings.
