Begin with the video lesson option. The videos eliminate the need for training as they provide a co-teaching experience in the classroom. Each lesson will follow the same format. The first 3 lessons may seem rigorous; however, each lesson follows the same format, making them less stressful as more are taught.
There are two different forms of writing taught on Write Bright: Prompt & Source. Prompt writing teaches students to respond to a writing task with no assistance from resources. Source writing teaches students to respond to a writing task using one or more reading passages as support for a response. Choose the type that matches your state's writing assessment.
- Each lesson is color coded to help the students focus their attention to the correct location on the lesson display as the teacher instructs.
- Passage books can be printed from the "Tools" tab.
3rd through 6th grade teachers: Under the training tab you will find student videos to enhance lesson elements. Once students have a strong understanding of the essay structure, show the videos to help increase word-choice and creativity. Don’t forget to preload each video to avoid delays and double-click the video after clicking play to view in full-screen.
If teaching from the lesson link, rather than the video, click the second or last button on the tool bar for full-screen.
