Build confident, capable writers who own the concrete skills necessary to excel at composing evidencebased expository or argumentative short responses. In order to succeed on standardized tests and a wide range of writing assignments that call for writing to a prompt, students must control the content and mechanics of a logically structured, grammatically correct paragraph. California Teacher of the Year award winner and celebrated trade author Alan Sitomer outlines the Triple C writing system a sequence of writing steps that helps students, grades 2-6, write concisely and convincingly in response to a prompt. Mastering Short Response Writing is a particularly effective instructional tool for raising the skill sets of low performing writers.
