Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could teach students how to be good writers by simply following a recipe? While I certainly do not profess that teaching writing is as easy as following a recipe, I do hope the writing resources I have developed and found will help you and your students. As you explore the various writing recipe pages included on this site, please feel free to print out and use the worksheets, recipe cards, and checklists I have developed. Look for the measuring spoons as you explore:

  • A red measuring spoon will link you to an online tool or generator.
  • A green measuring spoon will link you to a site/worksheet you can download.
  • A beige spoon will link you to an article or lesson.

Take time to explore the Additional Resources link as well. I have included numerous additional links and resources that will help you and your students cook up some great writing activities.

Please feel free to contact me if you know of additional resources that could be included on the site. As Martha Stewart would say, "Writing...it's a good thing!"
