SRSD writing offers a set of strategies with embedded deliberate skill practice that lift writing quality. It quickly enables teachers to see growth in literacy outcomes, and student independence.  Developed by Dr. Karen Harris & colleagues, SRSD is fueled by 40 years of research. The think SRSD team has spent two decades researching how to make it easier for schools to learn and sustain this approach.
