About The Writing Company

The Writing Company, a division of Social Studies School Service, has been a leader since the early 1980s in bringing together resources to help language arts teachers improve their students' written expression. We search out the highest quality supplementary learning materials, including books, reproducible activities, DVDs, PowerPoints, charts, and posters. Our experienced editorial staff and teacher consultants carefully evaluate titles from hundreds of publishers, searching for materials that are effective, balanced, easy to use, and reasonably priced. We publish catalogs that list the best materials for you using short, informative, and objective descriptions.

In addition, in 2012 The Center for Learning joined the Social Studies School Service family. With lessons on writing and great works of literature that enhance the positive impact of English instruction on your students' lives, The Center for Learning's activities also help students explore diverse perspectives, synthesize new ideas, evaluate characters, discuss universal themes, and more.
