See It, Be It, Write It
Using Performing Arts to Improve Writing Skills and Test Scores
Hope Sara Blecher-Sass, Ed.D., and Maryellen Moffitt 
See It, Be It, Write It

Improve students’ writing skills and boost their assessment scores while adding arts education, creativity, and fun to your writing curriculum. With this vibrant teacher resource, improving writing skills goes hand-in-hand with improving test scores. Students learn how to use acting and visualization as prewriting activities to help them connect writing prompts to their own lives, resulting in lively, personalized responses. Easy-to-use checklists guide students to include specific elements in their writing and to demonstrate the writing skills that are assessed on standardized tests.

See It, Be It, Write It is for anyone charged with teaching writing skills and preparing students for state-mandated standardized tests. Dozens of complete writing prompts are included, so teachers can get started right away. Specific content is also included for teachers working with English language learners, gifted and talented, and special needs students.

Digital content includes all reproducible forms, customizable and printable.
