Guaranteed to improve your writing scores... Start improving your students' writing skills the first day of school Put All the Pieces Together is a step-by-step guide that takes the learner through sentence building, paragraphing, constructive responses, and essay writing.

Put All the Pieces Together is brimming with practical ideas for teachers, and includes graphic organizers and checklists for the educator to bridge what students do not know to what they need to master.
