The Writing Center at CSRA RESA

CSRA RESA dedicates our new writing website to all teachers who must each day find ways to mold students into writers. This task is not easy, not quick, and not prescriptive. Each child brings his or her background, experiences, passion, and voice into expressing written thought. Every teacher, regardless of content expertise, must promote the thinking, the skills, the strategies, the reading, and the opportunity behind the art of writing.

Throughout this website, teachers can explore ideas to assist them in their writing instruction. They will find standards and glossaries, model learning targets, sample rubrics, sample prompts, extended lessons, and focused power lessons.

Our writing consultants will add new materials throughout this next year. We welcome your feedback and guidance as we build this writing resource. Our goal is to have a one-stop writing resource.

Teacher Resource Link

The redesigned T
eacher Resource Link is Georgia’s one-stop shop for teachers, with user-friendly search options and more than 28,000 resources categorized by grade-level standards.

The new site features an Essential Toolkit for teachers along with curriculum maps, frameworks, glossaries, teacher guidance and downloadable resources. Please note that there are resources for all grade levels, and we are excited to roll out the Essential Toolkit for K-5 ELA and math resources now. Further updates for other subjects and high school are currently in development.

The new site features a cleaner design and a simple user interface, allowing you to build a “shopping cart” of downloadable resources to save, store, and share. You can sort by grade level and resource type, and new advanced search options make it easier to find documents. The redesigned TRL can be a powerful tool for your classroom, providing coherent instructional resources aligned with state standards.

To access these resources, click on the “TRL” tab within the State Longitudinal Data System (SLDS). Click here for the TRL Quick Start Guide.
