Abstract:

"The Being a Writer program is a yearlong writing curriculum for grades K-5 that combines two decades of research in the areas of writing, motivation, and learning theory with social and ethical development.

It uses trade books for genre immersion and author studies. It integrates writing instruction with regular community-building elements and guided partner work that develops in students a sense of autonomy, belonging, and competence."--From publisher's website.
