Our Writing Program

At HES, we have developed a K-5 writing program that's goal is to ensure that our students have access to a high quality writing curriculum and writing instruction. Students participate in intentionally planned literacy learning opportunities to explore ideas and design products across content areas. Teachers instruct the complex processes, concepts and principles of literacy using differentiated strategies that make instruction accessible to all students. The curriculum is aligned vertically and horizontally to the Kentucky Core Academic Standards and monitored to ensure effective implementation with a focus on 21st Century Skills taught in the context of core subjects and interdisciplinary themes. Teachers, peers, and others provide regular feedback on students' 
writing and communication products as part of a constructive feedback process that is subsequently applied by students to improve their communications. 
 
We utilize the WriteSteps resources (writestepswriting.com), as well as resources from Abel & Atherton Consultation Inc. for standards-based writing and on-demand writing.
