I'm thinking about using Step Up to Writing next year. Do any of you use it? What's your opinion and is there anything else that works just as well or better?

I really like it. It's a clear format for kids just learning essay writing.

We use a similar program to Step Up to Writing. It is wonderful for informative/expository writing and opinion/persuasive writing. Once students get the hang of the format, they can do wonders with words!

It's formatted off of a color system basically. I like that they can create essays with ease. Only con can be that the writing can sound similar amongst kids. I'm really happy with it though. Unfortunately, all my materials are in a binder given to me by my school district. I don't use websites, but I'm sure you can google and find some basic information.
