FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “Writing Pacing Guide, Curriculum Map, Digital Format”

by Julie Faulkner
9th - 12th Grade

This fully editable, fully digital resource is designed to serve as a suggested pacing guide for an entire, full curriculum for a writing course. 

Teaching writing is tough. I get it. It isn’t always easy to teach, and it isn’t always easy to do.  So, I’ve created this resource from years and years of teaching writing at the secondary level.  Knowing I wanted to provide other teachers with the tools they need in a ready-to-go comprehensive format drove me to focus on my teaching practices with writing over the past year.  What I realized was that writing wasn’t just on my lesson plans. It wasn’t just plunked in whenever I felt like. I was purposefully planning with writing as the main focus. It was in everything I was doing.  

This resource is designed to serve as a suggested pacing guide for an entire curriculum dedicated to teaching writing with anchor/mentor texts fused into the process.  

With each unit that progresses through the three major modes of writing and a research unit, you will find links to ready-to-go resources that I’ve created and sell, although I’m offering this guide completely free.  Whether you select my materials or not, this guide can help you make your own selections and curriculum for teaching writing.   

The pacing is based on a traditional schedule.  Depending on how many writing assignments you assign, you will have enough material for one semester or one year. 

Download the file to receive a "force copy" link that will guide you to storing the map right in your own Google Drive.

Find my entire British Literature Curriculum with ready-to-go resources here.

If you also teach American Literature, I have a curriculum map for that as well.
