Total Motivation Writing addresses 100% of the TEKS and prepares students to excel on STAAR.
Designed to address the fourth-grade writing TEKS, Total Motivation Writing unpacks each standard and helps teachers close the gaps in student learning. The rigorous and comprehensive content is delivered in both print and online components, providing the flexibility needed to differentiate writing instruction in the classroom.
