Building Competent, Confident Writers

Ready Writing

Evidence-based writing has a new importance in today’s rigorous standards. Designed to address the demands of the standards, Ready Writing interweaves the writing standards with grade-level science and social studies themes to develop thoughtful, analytical writers. Through teacher-led instruction that fosters independence, students engage actively with source texts, learning to research for evidence and acquiring writing strategies that last for life. Ready Writing’s strong teacher support simplifies implementation with in-class, step-by-step strategies and tips to help students become fluent, fluid writers. The program:

  • Teaches students to unpack assignments and to identify the task, purpose and audience
  • Offers rigorous, real-world texts as source materials that give students authentic context for their writing
  • Builds knowledge through research, as students learn disciplined research skills and develop purposeful plans to direct their writing
  • Supports teachers with mentor texts, guidance materials, and online access to the Grades 2–5 Ready Teacher Toolbox
