What is the Hub?

by Empowering Writers is a powerful tool for teachers and curriculum leaders – an interactive 360-degree online resource that combines professional development, digital teaching tools, how-to demonstration videos and direct to student content.  Take me there!

Look at these samples from Mrs. Strickland's 3rd grade class! They are busy as can be preparing for their reading STAAR test coming up next week. After reading an article on the monarch butterfly, students annotated and added subtitles for each paragraph. Next, they wrote a descriptive segment that described the behaviors of the butterfly from the article. In the second paragraph, students wrote a response to the non-fiction text using EW's sentence starters! Later, students had to develop their own STAAR like questions from the reading passage. I am so impressed with how far our students have come this year! And you just can't help but love the word referents they came up with for the titles!😍
