The Fix Strategy Writing Program

Subscriptions will be available to schools, teachers, speech-language pathologists, and tutors beginning November 1, 2020. Subscription includes a live and/or recorded webinar, interactive notebooks at a discounted price, and access to online materials and lesson plans.

The Write Turn® provides evidence-based strategies and explicit instructional techniques that guide students through the writing process (brainstorming, organizing, writing and revising); a process that exceeds a typical writer’s workshop. Strategies include The Write Turn’s FIX Strategy for revising and self-regulation, which helps students make “meaningful changes” that improve the quality of their stories and essays. Students consistently benefit from this explicit instruction as they learn to internalize these strategies and incorporate what they’ve learned into the classroom curriculum.

EXPLICIT STRATEGY INSTRUCTION: Students are introduced to strategies that improve the quality of their writing through:

  • Planning, writing, and revising skills (The FIX Strategy)
  • Brainstorming, categorization, and organizational skills
  • Language processing skills that improve sentence/paragraph writing
  • Annotating text and writing more detailed and complex topic sentences
  • Sentence-combining & writing grammatically correct sentences
  • Internalizing writing, revising, and self-regulation strategies

INTERACTIVE NOTEBOOKS: Students implement these writing and revising strategies with greater ease and fluidity through The Write Turn’s first-of-their-kind interactive notebooks. These notebooks give teachers, tutors, and speech-language pathologists a unique platform to collaborate with students while providing explicit writing instruction; both in person and remotely. The notebooks are designed to encourage more self-regulation (goal setting, self-instruction, self-monitoring, self-reinforcement) as students plan, writing and revise their compositions.

  • Teachers, tutors, and speech-language pathologists can choose from the introductory notebook which provides students with pre-writing strategies and introduces them to strategies for every genre (stories, expository essays, persuasive essays, and informative essays). Interactive notebooks with specific genres provide scaffold instruction and can be used until students become independent in implementing and internalizing strategies.
