Science Research Associates (SRA) recently published “Writing and Language Arts, Grades K-6,” by Jean Gillet, Charles Temple, and James Williams. The program includes student handbooks, exercise books, and teachers guides, and includes poster-sized big books for the lower grades. SRA's publications have been singled out for promotion in a controversial move by the U.S. Department of Education. In designing these materials, the authors sought to encourage creative expression by students by writing in student-driven workshop approaches, while providing explicit guidance for high-need students.
Besides this project for SRA, Temple has written programs elementary and high school students that are published by Merrill, MacMillan, McGraw Hill, D.C. Heath, and Write Source.
