If you’re looking for a lively, literature-infused alternative to traditional instruction in conventions, look no further than Conventions and Craft. This breakthrough resource provides a year’s worth of instruction in the language skills writers need most—skills in grammar, sentence structure, punctuation and capitalization, word knowledge, and editing. One convention, or “understanding,” is covered each week in a lesson cycle made up of five “micro-workshops” that take just 10 minutes a day!

Each grade-specific kit includes:

  • 192-page, spiral-bound Teacher’s Guide
  • An anthology of 14 full-color short texts
  • 6 informational trade books by well-known nonfiction authors
  • Access to a companion website with assessment tools and videos of Linda Hoyt conducting model lessons
  • Sample Student Papers for use in lessons
  • A Skills Continuum inspired by CCSS, TEKS, and VSOL
  • Sample Year-Long Plans
