With models, such as Cinderella, Tuck Everlasting, "To Sleep Under the Stars," "Both Sides of the Fence," Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry, and Harry Potter, teachers learn how to build confidence and logic in young writers through Jane’s prewriting strategies, student-centered terminology, color-coding, and Web-off-the-Word™, Jane's breakthrough approach to commentary and vocabulary development.
The standards-based curriculum guide aligns with both the Common Core State Standards and the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS).
