Developmental, day-by-day Madeline Hunter lesson plans

Each unit presents New Focus Skills (NFS) which students practice numerous times over the course of a unit
Students have opportunities for further practice of these skills in subsequent lessons that have Review Focus Skills (RFS)
Writers Workshop - individual or small group conferencing
Rubrics - use as teaching points
Spiraled Lessons - developmental progression
Closure Activites - end of each lesson high, medium and low level questions check for understanding
Product Expectations - graphic organizers and final works

Spiraling K-5 Program
Why is this important?
"The standards for K-5 offer a focus for instruction
each year to help ensure that students gain adequate mastery of a range of skills and applications."
"Each year in their writing, students should demonstrate increasing sophistication in all aspects of language use, from vocabulary and syntax to the development and organization of ideas, and they should address increasingly
demanding content and sources."
