The print version of our popular middle school composition curriculum! New and improved Jump In, 2nd Edition!
Students will learn nine types of essays, a research report, story writing, poetry, and much more in 98 daily lessons. They’ll practice paragraphs and paragraph types, topic sentences, a main idea (thesis statement), in-text citations, compare-and-contrast writing, and other essential building blocks of composition. The text is incremental, the tone is light with a sprinkling of humor, and the assignments are very achievable.
Each essay assignment now comes with a suggested writing schedule and a specific checklist to help students proofread their work.
And speaking of proofreading, students are guided through the process of proofreading with practical lessons, checklists, and a Mistake Medic.
Teachers will enjoy the new, specific grading grids for each essay assignment. Find the print Teacher’s Guide here. >>
