Saturday, January 28 • 9:30am - 4:30pm
Strand 8 - Writing is Taught - Writing is Not Caught
Do your students have difficulty composing a meaningful coherent paragraph, a convincing opinion essay, or a well-organized informative article? If so, join us at this session and come away with effective teaching procedures. Composing written products is a demanding skill for any individual, but is particularly difficult for low-performing students. Dr. Archer will present a model that divides written expressing instruction into two components: 1) teaching the attributes of the written product and illustrating it with an example (WHAT), and 2) teaching the process of writing using writing frames, strategies, and think sheets (HOW). These instructional components will be demonstrated with a number of written products including opinion essays, informative summaries, compare / contrast paragraphs, informative reports, and narrative products.
