Thoughts to Page: Explorations and Expressions

Your feedback is important to us!
After viewing our curriculum units, please take a few minutes to help us understand how the units, which were created by public school teachers, may be useful to others.
Students need the opportunity to develop their innate talent and potential for thinking and language use. These proposed units describe lessons which provide strategies for opening students to their own ideas and words. The first set of lessons focus only on the beginning of the writing process, the discovery and free-writing stage. The second set of lessons focus on structuring these free-flowing ideas that all students have potential for. Thus the objectives of the unit provide the opportunity both for expression and the structuring of that expression.
