Zaner Bloser Strategies for Writers Update for Parents
Students are being asked to write more now than ever before - in all grade levels and in all content areas. To best prepare Libertyville District 70 students for future writing tasks, Libertyville School District 70 has adopted Strategies for Writers K-5 by Zaner-Bloser as our district writing program. Strategies for Writers is a comprehensive writing and grammar solution introducing the six traits of writing at every step of the writing process to compose opinions, informative/ explanatory essays, and narrative compositions.

Your child will write routinely for a range of tasks, purposes, and audiences, learn to analyze writing models by reading closely, write to multiple sources using technology, and master grammar and conventions of standard written English. Pre and Post tests ensure growth and inform differentiated instruction. Students will be engaged in online grammar games, proofreading activities, and composition writing both in the classroom and at home. This is an exciting time for writing in Libertyville School District 70 and we encourage all parents to talk with your child's classroom teacher to learn more about Strategies for Writers.
