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

See It, Be It, Write It is for anyone charged with teaching writing skills and preparing students for standard 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. A CD-ROM includes all reproducible forms, customisable and printable.
