"It's no surprise, but the resources you are putting together are AMAZING! Thank you for all of your work as we try to wrap our heads around a digital learning platform. As always, the EW team has exceeded our expectations! Thanks again for all you continue to do to support teaching and learning."
~ Maureen F. | Director, Language Arts / Social Studies
Empowering Writers content team is always working to create distancing learning lessons relevant to the needs of today. The lessons rely on the same proven methodology presented in fresh ways to assure consistency of instruction. You can find these Distance Learning Lessons embedded throughout the guide.
Our Skill Power! PowerPoints are designed for teachers to present a digital lesson plan for the whole class. These Powerpoints introduce a new skill and provide clear instruction for students. In this way, we can assure that your students hear consistent language across grade levels while receiving all of the necessary information.
Includes a teacher narration of the lesson as students move through the PowerPoint.
NEW! Be sure to check out our “PLUS” resources. PLUS takes our teacher tools and direct-to-student content to the next level. Intended for distance learning and beyond, small group, lesson reinforcement, pre teaching, and for any time when a teacher voice may be needed for lesson support.
These are assigned in conjunction with the instructional lesson the teacher delivers. These pages can be assigned and completed through most learning platforms.
Self-guided instructional lessons on key skill areas. These lessons culminate with assignments for students to complete. Designed to be creative and engaging, these lessons can be assigned for at-home learning, independent study, and review and reinforcement of concepts.
These include an optional audio file. Teachers can utilize this feature in a number of ways. For example, prior to annotation and analysis, have students listen to the audio file while tracking along with the text. This will build familiarity with the language and vocabulary. Conversely, have students utilize the audio feature for review and reinforcement.
The K-1 Distance Learning Lessons include a variety of assignments spanning a range of foundational writing skills and strategies concurrent with the Empowering Writers methodology. The lessons are stand-alone with skills presented in isolation. Every assignment can be sent to students exactly as is or separated into several lessons.
Lesson Format: Google Slides, Microsoft Powerpoint, and Printable PDF Packets
A quick informative brief that let parents know what writing instruction is taking place in the classroom and ways to connect it to reading experiences at home.
With a district account, all of the student content can be assigned directly from the digital guides to digital classrooms such as Google, Office 365, Schoology, and Canvas.
The digital resources use multiple formats to deliver the learning. These formats include digital classroom, Cosmos annotative student pages, YouTube video, ISpring PPTs, and printable PDF.
