What is Collins Writing?
Based on decades of research and results, the Collins Writing Program and its cornerstone Five Types of Writing provide teachers with a framework for using writing to engage, teach, and assess students while building essential writing skills and habits in the context of everyday classroom learning. Collins Writing is the answer to improving thinking, learning, and writing across the curriculum.
Shift the Balance
Collins Writing is a unified teaching and management system designed to increase the amount of writing and thinking happening in classrooms while streamlining teacher workload.
Collins Writing supplies schools with tools and routines to build student accountability, increase engagement, and improve content retention through writing, promoting meaningful learning in all content areas.
Build Writing Skills
Collins Writing provides teachers with a structure that builds writing skills and habits through focused practice, increased student accountability, and meaningful feedback. From creative writing to text- and evidence based-response and everything in between–Collins writing is the difference between assigning writing and actually teaching writing.
The common language and clear expectations of the Collins Writing Program’s Five Types of Writing make it easy to teach and use writing across all grade levels and content areas in the context of everyday learning.
