Step Up to Writing Workshop

Step Up to Writing is an organizational program that teaches explicit writing strategies within the writing process (pre-writing, drafting, revising, editing, final copy, proofreading, and sharing) to help students organize their thinking and their writing.

We use colors of a traffic signal to help you write a paragraph.

  • Green means: Go….Write a topic sentence
  • Yellow means: Slow down… give a reason, detail, or fact. Also, use a transition.
  • Red means: Stop ……Explain. Give an example
  • Green means: Go back!!! Remind the reader of your topic and write a conclusion sentence.

After our 5-week workshop students will walk away with the ability and knowledge to write and construct a 1-3 paragraph essay.
