The Talk to Write, Write to Learn™ Teachers’ Manual is a 248-page resource guide for education professionals to provide direct instruction of narrative “story” development and expository “informational” text writing.


Talk to Write, Write to Learn™ expands and enhances the writing initiatives of school-based literacy programs. The hands-on, developmental methods provide students the guided practice they need for both narrative and informational text thinking and writing. Included are sequenced goals and benchmarks, conferencing and self-reflective checklists, and a variety of rubrics. Our Narrative and Expository Decision Tree Guides help you individualize student instructional goals. This resource is full of ideas to prepare students for the increased emphasis on argumentative and informative writing.
