The Write Turn​

Strategy Instruction in Writing


Effective strategy instruction can minimize resource demands by explicitly scaffolding components of the writing process (planning, writing, and revising).  After years of research and implementation, Cindy developed The Write Turn -- a unique writing program that incorporates language processing skills, the FIX Strategy (a research-based revising strategy), and self-regulation strategies designed for students of all ages, regardless of their achievement level.  Cindy's FIX Strategy instruction provides the building blocks and tools students need to improve the quality of their essays and to become successful writers.

Summer Group Sessions

Summer writing sessions provide 20 hours of specialized and explicit instruction in a researched-based writing program that goes beyond a typical writer's workshop.  Students are introduced to strategies for every genre (narrative, expository, persuasive, informative).  These strategies help improve:

  • ​Planning, writing, and revising skills
  • Working memory
  • Language processing and visual imagery skills that improve sentence/paragraph writing
  • Brainstorming, categorization, and organizational skills
  • Annotating text and writing detailed and complex topic sentences
  • Sentence-combining & writing grammatically correct sentences
  • Self-regulation skills (self-reinforcement, self-monitoring, goal setting) to internalize strategies


​​Small group sessions (4:1 student to teacher ratio) are offered at a group rate of $825.00/student (price includes student workbook and materials).  Please register for your preferred session in the section below.​
