The Standards offer a portrait of a college- and career-ready student who is a literate person prepared for life in the 21st century with the skills and understanding to be effective in and outside of the classroom and the workplace.
The Being a Writer™ program offers student-centered, deeply interactive instruction that incorporates the CCSS vision for student listening and speaking, personal writing expression, and adapting the form and content of writing for varied tasks and purposes.
