Teaching Writing Through Differentiated Instruction with Leveled Graph 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

These reproducible graphic organizers are wonderful. You can use them with any story or text. If your school is like mine and requires teachers to differentiate often, this is great because there are 3 leveled organizers for each skill. It also includes great model essays to show the kids for each type of writing.
