Teaching students to write well is hard. Team teaching with a master writing teacher can make it easier—and more productive. Come to Class offers you that opportunity. In Come to Class, Carol Jago shares the writing lessons and classroom survival skills she honed over 32 years of teaching. Each lesson describes Carol’s teaching moves and language and includes suggestions on pacing the lesson, setting students up for success, organizing flexible groups, and troubleshooting common classroom management problems.
Organized around five fundamental types of writing—expository writing, persuasive writing, writing about literature, narrative writing, and reflective writing—Come to Class will help you personalize your writing curriculum while at the same time it will support you as you prepare your students for district assessments.
