ASSESSMENT This activity involves using a comic book for students to show how they use quotations, which are writing conventions. This could be used after students have already worked on how they use quotations marks, as an assessment of learning. Comic strips make the assessment a fun activity, but is a product that teachers can assess.

research based literacy teaching ideas for your classroom. These strategies have been studied by researchers in the field and actually work.

INSTRUCTION Teacher creates a chart with several forms of text as well as its purpose and features. Students use this chart in their writing as well as when they are reading to determine form of text they are reading and what to expect from it. This chart would be displayed for students to use whenever needed. This is effective because students can see the difference between different forms of text and use it to determine what form they should use for their writing purpose.

INSTRUCTION This is a strategy to teach writing conventions. Teacher writes the parts of a sentence with the class: e.g. capitals, punctuation, spelling, and completing a thought on the chart paper. They write a grammatically incorrect sentence on the chart paper, teacher opens up to class discussion, and students help make corrections on the chart paper in a different colour. Students visually see the corrections to the sentence and it models how students can edit their own sentences.

INSTRUCTION: Teacher writes a message on the board with purposeful mistakes. Have students correct mistakes such as punctuation and capitalization to practice writing conventions.

UNDERSTANDING This paper helped me to understand how writing can be difficult to some students with learning disabilities as well as how educators can help students with LDs because skilled writers with effective instruction.

From the Balanced Literacy Diet. This activity is a form of direct instruction. The teacher shows the student how to form contractions. Would be fun to turn this lesson into a game, where students have to find their "contraction match".

UNDERSTANDING This webpage helped me to better understand the importance of handwriting. Handwriting is a basic tool used in many subjects for taking notes, taking tests, and doing classroom work and homework. This source also included information on instruction in handwriting such as teaching children a consistent formation of letters with continuous stokes whenever possible and starting by focusing learning on the motor pattern instead of getting caught up in perfect legibility or size.
