I came up with the the A, B, C Sentence ™ and the children’s faces lit up! Next came the Secret A, B, C Sentence ™, and the kids had an almost puzzled expression that said, “This is easy! Is it really this simple?” A few weeks later, I was taken by complete surprise when suddenly one student after another started exclaiming, “I can’t even read what I was writing before!”
This is why a polychronic perspective is often associated with a communitarian starting point. The focus on the collective, or group, stretching forward and back, animates the polychronic view of time. In more monochronic settings, an individualist way of life is more easily accommodated. Individualists can more easily extract moments in time, and individuals themselves, from the networks around them. If time is a straight line stretching forward and not back, then fate or destiny may be less compelling. (For more on this, see the essay on Communication Tools for Understanding Cultural Difference.)
I have to say, I had great success with your program this year. Going into our standardized provincial tests in February, my students were well prepared and comfortable with the Secret ABC format. Most of my students are Indo-Canadian, with Punjabi as their first language, so helping them to structure their writing made it easier for us all. Even when we had put our Pattern Based Writing booklets away, I kept referring to the Pattern Based Writing system – and held kids accountable for the lessons they 8767 d learned. The booklets were always there for reference, and they were the 8766 criteria 8767 for good writing.
I’ve taught 9th and 5th grade for five years. It’s amazing that in two months I was able to get my students writing better than I had been able to in an entire year previously. We have a writing program, but it doesn 8767 t teach what this teaches. This program works! Thanks!
Many natural patterns of thought and writing exist: simile, analogy, metaphor, problem-solution, cause-effect, compare-contrast, and more. However, the most important pattern in all of writing is this: beginning, middle, and ending. We must have a beginning, middle, and ending in our whole composition and in our paragraphs. When students achieve this, they express fully-developed points and ideas in their writing—and they do so with rhythm and flow.
Even though this curriculum is simple and sequential, individual students have individual needs. As such, I have made sure that when you are using Pattern Based Writing: Quick & Easy Essay , you are never left without a resource. You have 796 pages of the following resources:

He has to take a timed writing test as part of an application to a specialty high school and I 8767 m hoping this PBW system will give him the tools he needs.
Having said that, I have used all of the program’s breakthrough concepts alongside of traditional writing vocabulary—topic sentence, main idea, paragraph, introduction, body, conclusion, and more. Students must know these terms when it’s time for state and district assessments, and I make sure they learn them and understand them!
