- Top Score Writing
Fifteen years ago, Lisa Collum was frustrated by this reality while working as a teacher in a Title I school. She became frustrated watching countless students fail or struggle with writing, and their scores on standardized tests indicated a path that needed corrective action. There was no curriculum available to help teachers focus on real writing skills and to help students develop this critical life skill.
Lisa took this challenge as her own. She studied the common areas where students struggled and developed a curriculum to support students and teachers alike. In less than a year, she turned her entire class around from nearly failing to achieve a 100% pass rate. This is where Top Score Writing was born.
With such impactful results, word quickly spread the power of Lisa’s curriculum. Top Score Writing has since grown to include full teacher curriculums for 2nd through 12th grade, and now includes student workbooks, a digital curriculum, animated lessons, PowerPoint lessons, scoring, and professional development training.
