This is a district initiated program which has many tools and strategies to assist with writing skills.
We often use a tool which allows students to break down definitions. Students define a word and give an example of the word by illustrating it. We also use the color coding strategy which breaks down the parts of writing a selection by colors, green being the topic sentence, yellow the details, red explaining the details and green going back to the topic.
