Are my 4th edition WriteShop I & II materials compatible with the 5th edition materials?

The 4th edition WriteShop I & II Teacher’s manual is compatible with the 5th edition student workbooks. Some of the pre-writing activities and Skill Builders in the 5th edition student workbooks have been updated leading to minor differences in the 4th edition answer keys. You may also notice a few small differences between the teacher’s lesson plans and the student workbook instructions.
