More About Evan-Moor Educational Publishers
Since 1979, Evan-Moor Educational Publishers has provided educators with practical, creative, and engaging PreK–8 materials to support and enrich the core curriculum.
We strive to produce educational materials that are aligned with current standards and best educational practices—and with student interests and motivations. We pride ourselves on our ability to create products that not only build and reinforce basic and complex skills, but that develop a curiosity about the subjects in which those skills are taught.
When teaching colleagues and friends Joy Evans and Jo Ellen Moore created their first handwritten book to motivate struggling students in their classroom, they had no idea that they were embarking on a very successful career in educational publishing.
In the 1970s, Joy and Jo Ellen were team teaching in a Title I school in California and developing their own supplemental resources to inspire students in their classroom to learn basic skills. After multiple rejection letters from publishers, Joy and Jo Ellen decided to independently publish their first six titles. Partnering with Joy’s brother, Bill Evans, the trio founded Evan-Moor Educational Publishers in 1979.
Joy and Jo Ellen taught the first few years while Bill practiced law. Bill and Joy’s parents, Olive and Earl, volunteered their garage as a warehouse and shipping facility. Olive and Earl also served as the first sales team, visiting local stores and book clubs—and eventually the grassroots efforts took off.
Today, Evan-Moor Educational Publishers operates with the same family spirit and enthusiasm that the company was founded on nearly 35 years ago. While Evan-Moor sadly said goodbye to Joy Evans in 2012, the passion and energy that Joy, Jo Ellen, and Bill infused into Evan-Moor has propelled the company to long-term success.
Joy and Jo Ellen’s inaugural, hand-crafted book has led to more than 500 titles, as well as digital resources, e-books, center kits, RTI resources, and an interactive learning platform for 1:1 learning models. And today, as in the early days, Evan-Moor continues to develop resources and technologies with a clear, unwavering focus on the goal of helping children learn.
Reviews - What do customers think about Paragraph Writing?
excellent for homeschooling Jan 11, 2009
I am a homeschooling mom of a 2nd grader, 3rd grader and 6th grader. I am really looking forward to applying this book to my children's weekly studies. I was looking for a book to build their writing skills, as I have noticed that they weren't as strong in their paragraph writing as I'd like for them to be. I think this book will even make ME a better paragraph writer because it has a very user-friendly, logical setup. It covers each skill in writing great paragraphs... topic sentences, supporting details, brainstorming, etc. I would not put too much stock in the age/grade level because I think this would even be excellent remedial help for students who are weak or don't seem to "get" writing paragraphs. I think this is an excellent foundation builder for writing skills!
Paragraph Writing Fun Mar 16, 2007
I love this book. It is a simple, easy-to-follow workbook for both teacher and student. It simplifies ways to write well-structured, interesting paragraphs about any topic. Good, solid instruction. Evan-Moore has done it again!
Good Way to Teach the Basics of Writing Dec 1, 2006
I bought this book to help my students stay focused on one subject at a time. I always have students who can write pages of run-on sentences, but can't write a paragraph. This book provides a nice way to learn about topic sentences and supporting details. It also has a lot of writing forms that give students hints about what to write (e.g., describe how the food tastes). This book has given my class a common language that's helped writing across the curricula. I do wish that it provided more lines for each writing form, but it's easy enough to give them extra paper.
