Essentials of Writing

Inquiry By Design’s Essentials of Writing supplementary curriculum is designed to provoke conversation and promote the development of authentic written responses. Carefully sequenced cycles of reading, writing, and small- and whole-class discussion culminate in written arguments and informational/ explanatory responses. They’re formal, form-specific, but never formulaic.
