Writing Programs Used in Maine Schools
What are some of the writing programs used in Maine Schools?
(We asked and many schools responded. If you have a particular writing program your school uses and you are experiencing success demonstrated by scores and/or student growth, please e-mail Holly and we will add it to our bank of resources to help each other!) Thank you!
Portland – Riverton Elementary
Riverton Elementary uses the Teacher’s College Reader’s / Writer’s Workshop Model. It has been very effective for our school and has resulted in significant gains in literacy.
Southport – Southport Central School
WriteSteps is the best program I have used in a school.
Greenbush – Dunn (Helen S.) School
My teachers visited classrooms in Cumberland to observe teachers using the Lucy Calkins writing program. It’s new for our data but it is looking like an excellent choice for us.
Bowdoinham – Bowdoinham Community School
RSU 75 has been working K-8 with the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project for 4-5 years and has some demonstrated gains in writing.
Ellsworth – Ellsworth Elementary-Middle School
We use Lucy Calkins and our experience has been wonderful and our writing has changed unbelievable. We would be happy to chat with anyone!
