Middle School Students Learn the Components of Argument Writing

Step Up to Writing Success Story

John Williams School No. 5, Rochester, New York

John Williams School Number 5 began implementing Step Up to Writing® Fourth Edition school-wide in order to meet rigorous writing standards and help every student, at every skill level, learn to write thoughtful and organized compositions. Teacher Kelli Monique Briggs teaches her middle school students how to form effective arguments by providing writing assignments that are relevant to their daily lives and that prepare them for writing in high school and beyond.

"When our kids were taking the state exams or any type of essay, they would tense up and get nervous. Now they know to organize it [their writing]."
