If you’re an educator, you might be struggling with how to meet the skills gap in your classroom.
Maybe it looks like this…
You teach a lesson and get students ready to complete an assignment. Then hands start going up. “I don’t understand what to do.” “I need help.”
About 15 minutes later, as you’re still trying to help some students get started on the assignment, you start to hear, “I’m done, now what do I do?”
Is it possible to keep everyone engaged and successful?
Can you imagine having a 45 minute lesson where you are free to give students immediate feedback without being trapped with “I need help” or “I’m done”?
On this website, you will learn more about a new type of curriculum design that will greatly reduce your stress as a teacher, and help your students relax and enjoy learning.
Have fun exploring the website!
What teachers are saying
“I have some boys who get easily distracted and tired of writing. I was nervous about doing the program every day. But as soon as I started it they really looked forward to the routine and they liked knowing what was coming. The consistency of the program worked really well for those kids. Even the kids that really struggle with fine motor skills enjoy the task of the lessons. It isn’t a battle.”
“The group lesson before starting the books each day is so valuable. They really don’t want to have to fix their work. They want to get it right the first time, so I think they know that group lesson is valuable too.”
“Everything just flows. The creative choice writing every day gives me the time to walk around and check everyone’s work on the conventions. A lot of kids are proud of their work and they want you to check it, so I try to get around to everyone each day. I like that the program gives me time to do that.”
“It is nice to make time for writing and to have it in the schedule. I’ve never had that. Sure, we did writing as a part of science and social studies and reading and all that but we weren’t teaching it. I don’t think we can expect kids to just know how to write. If you don’t teach it, how do you expect them to know it? It gives me chills to think where my kids would be if we hadn’t had Growing Writers this year.”
