Grandville, MI (PRLOG) – WriteSteps today announced that their research-based, award-winning, digital and print, 100 percent K-5 Common Core writing and grammar program, has been approved by the Utah State Board of Education to be used in Utah classrooms for a period of five years.
“We are pleased that WriteSteps has been approved by the state of Utah,” said Suzanne Klein, Founder and CEO of WriteSteps. “WriteSteps empowers teachers to prepare students for Common Core testing and a lifetime of confident writing. We look forward to connecting with Utah educators and school districts.”
The WriteSteps curriculum was reviewed by members of the Instructional Materials Commission. The commission is comprised of a variety of state educators and non-educators from across Utah. It was deemed that WriteSteps met the Common Core standards in writing and grammar.
WriteSteps covers narrative, informative/explanatory, and opinion writing texts aligned to the Common Core writing standards. The daily lesson program gives teachers and students everything they need to develop their craft with confidence. Visual aids such as authentic student writing samples, graphic organizers, and 6 Traits/Common Core rubrics give students of all learning styles effective habits that foster clear written expression.
The purpose of state recommendation of instructional material is to provide Utah schools with the best core-related materials. The adoption process also provides for consistent contract pricing of the recommended materials at the lowest price for Utah’s schools.
