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
