Teaching Writing

I’m really frustrated.  We don’t really have any curriculum for teaching  any of the genres that fourth grade is expected to know.  I”m tired of making up stuff.  I’m tired of taking what I kind of knew and what sort of worked from a teacher 4 years ago and trying to use that again and again.

I want something, from someone, that is a plan for writing a summary.  I know how to write one, and yes, I’ve told that two my students.  But I want some curriculum that I can look at, tweak, and use with my students.
