You work to develop students' abilities not only for analyzing texts, but also for evidence-based writing, conducting smart conversations, and delivering solid arguments. That's why Collections connects instruction for reading, writing, speaking, listening, and research.
Writing—Integrated and Interactive
Writing is integrated into every collection within the Collections program, providing your students with texts for close reading that serve as mentor texts for writing, interactive, and self-paced digital lessons that teach thinking and writing; focused lessons with models that teach performance-based writing; and dynamic digital tools that engage students in writing, revision, and evaluation.
Using familiar digital tools, Collections engages students in marking texts, linking to related media, and acquiring the skills needed for close reading and writing.

Collections offers students a dynamic digital writing platform where they can peer review with their classmates and check originality using Turnitin® Feedback Studio. From myWriteSmart students are able to access their notebook and incorporate text evidence into their writing. They are also able to communicate with their teacher and ask for feedback.
