Written directly to the student, Jump In is a fun way to get reluctant writers writing (though those that love writing will enjoy the lessons as well). Students are walked step-by-step through the writing process, learning about pre-writing, various types of writing including poetry, and editing/revision. Students read instruction then answer questons or follow prompts right in the book. Writing examples are included throughout the text. The teacher’s book includes a summary of the writing lessons, as well as tips on grading, helping the student with proofreading and revision, and inspiration.
