I have used the John Collins writing - but more in the upper grades. He has an office in MA - i think you have to google writing across the curriculum. I am in southern NH and many schools that I use to sub at used it. You only grade certain parts of their writing (FCA's). For instance if you wanted to say : use 3 adjectives, correct punctuation, and capital letters then you are not supposed to correct anything else. The grade is for just the FCA's you stated. Try his web site - it can direct you even more. There are writing folders and so much more there.
