This study will focus on the sixth grade based California English Language Arts Standards and the High Point text writing process. The classroom consists of a combination of English Second Language (ESL) and Resources Specialist Pupils (RSP). The location was at a middle school in the inner city with a low socio-economic index. One hundred percent of the students are Mexican, Mexican American, and a few other South American countries. Most of the parents speak only one language, which is Spanish.
The goal of this study is to show how the development of writing templates can simplify the writing process for students, while addressing the standards. Templates will be created for the grade appropriate genres. These templates will be designed to guide the students painlessly through the required curriculum objective for each genre. Further, this study will measure the effectiveness of the intervention.
