Kari (comment #25),
You asked if I knew of any writer's noebooks that are already set up for the students. I am not sure if I know exactly what you mean. I use Lucy Calkin's Units of Study, and my students just use a blank composition book that they decorate with photos. Since her program encourages students to write without "rules," I am not sure what one would look like that is set up based on her books. However, I would like to hear from others reading this blog about what their students' writer's notebooks look like.
My students do have a writing folder where they keep important handouts and draft booklets.
