Draft:Builder

Most struggling writers spend less than one minute planning (Writing Better, 2005). This is why we developed Draft:Builder. It breaks down the writing process into three manageable steps: 1) brainstorming, 2) note-taking and 3) writing the first draft.

With this structure, students learn to generate ideas and organize them to form a cohesive paper. Draft:Builder is particularly useful to students with Autism Spectrum Disorders and Asperger’s who have trouble with organization.

 

Incite! Learning Series

The Incite! Learning Series is a collection of original short films and a thought-provoking instruction model to engage every student in the critical thinking and feeling process. This research-based program was developed around the science of how students learn best using the theory of “anchored instruction” and “front-loading” standards-based curriculum.
