KidVision is proud to release “Writing Express”

In every classroom in America, students are required to do more and more writing. It is now required on SAT and ACT tests, and for any child pointed to college, the ability to write and to be comfortable with writing is essential to success. But, many teachers have not been taught how to improve the quality of their students’ writing. Now, they can be.
Dr. William Spivey has worked in classrooms across America over the past 30 years to develop his Writing Express program for K-12 teachers. Now , it is available on DVD for purchase at a special introductory price of $149.00.
Divided into five strands of writing instruction, the DVD set , is like attending a Spivey workshop. Materials are based on the National Standards for writing and the Five Traits of writing. Dr. Spivey invented the Sentence Expansion Tree for primary and secondary students, along with the Big Three, Six, and Ten Charts for early, middle and high school writers. All of these are included in the program and extended lessons are available free to download from the web site, Writingexpress.net. There is an overview segment with testimonials from teachers at every grade level. Each strand of instruction is modeled, including: The Simple Sentence, 3-5 Sentence Sequence, The Expository Support Chunk, Narrative-Descriptive , and Expository and Persuasive writing and each training session is
punctuated with “Writing Express Breaks’ for teachers to pause and practice. Many teachers have told us that they can go back into their classrooms immediately and implement what they have learned, often the very next day. Test scores have increased as much as 20 points for many classes after students learn the Spivey methods.
