The WriteSteps curriculum is posted in the Grades K-12 English Language Arts/Reading State Recommended List, which includes a complete listing of instructional materials recommended by the Georgia State Board of Education.  It was deemed that WriteSteps meets all of the writing and grammar Common Core Standards and the Georgia Performance Standards.

WriteSteps covers narrative, informative/explanatory, and opinion writing texts aligned to the Common Core writing standards. The daily lesson program gives teachers and students everything they need to develop their craft with confidence. Visual aids such as authentic student writing samples, graphic organizers, and 6 Traits/Common Core rubrics give students of all learning styles effective habits that foster clear written expression.
