Teacher's Guide - The Power in Your Hands: Writing Nonfiction in High School
Students will learn by themselves in the self-guided textbook, so why buy the Teacher's Guide?
This Teacher's Guide gives you all the answers for their daily work. It also equips you to be as involved as you care to be in your students' writing class.
They learn. They write. Now what? How do you grade?
You spoke and we listened. The Power in Your Hands, 2nd Edition, Teacher’s Guide includes an easy-to-use grading grid that helps you grade those essays once they start coming--and they will come, now that students finally understand how to write introductions, conclusions, and everything in between. With this grading grid you can evaluate your teens’ essays by answering simple and clear questions. Whether you are new at grading or a seasoned pro, your nail-biting days are over.

Answers to all of the daily lessons are included in the Teacher’s Guide, along with many student and professional essays from the textbook so you know what your students are reading. Each assignment in The Power in Your Hands includes a specific checklist and writing schedule; these, too, are included in this guide.
Also in the Teacher’s Guide are the 14-Minute Power Surges, a fun program of daily writing prompts geared to interest even the most reluctant writers. This program is similar to Sharon Watson’s 10-Minute Writing Plunges found in Jump In, her popular middle-school writing curriculum.
