Writing to Win Writing on Demand is a system of writing strategies for building the vocabulary of content standards.

For each critical-thinking strategy:
- A script for using the Five Key Practices for Writing on Demand
- Teacher model of writing
- Student exemplars
- Daily Writing Prompts for all state and national standards – ELA, math, science, and social studies
- Templates for creating charts – Guide for Writing to Learn, Log of Entries for Teacher Expectations, Picture Makers, Voice, Pictures, and Flow
