Writing is complex, involving many processes, skills and strategies. Writers engage in many tasks at once such as thinking about letter formation, writing conventions, idea generation, and organization. To become proficient writers, students need explicit instruction, modelling, scaffolding, feedback and many opportunities to engage in authentic, meaningful writing tasks.

Understanding

This online resource from Reading Rockets provides a wide array of information for teachers and parents. Information regarding classroom strategies, writing resources, and assessments are provided for kindergarten to grade three, as are writing samples. I found these writing samples particularly helpful because they are annotated with observations and next steps which gave me a good overview of the developmental stages and processes related to writing.

This article made me think differently about the writing process. It discusses the value of ‘writing to learn’, which is typically less of a focus than learning to write. Although I often read about engaging students in reading tasks, I have read little on motivating students to write. Writing-to-learn tasks can reduce aversion to writing and boost self-confidence while engaging students in informal writing tasks to explore their thinking, for assessment-for-learning and to guide…

Instruction

Writing is a complex process. Although there are many tools and methods for teaching writing processes and strategies, the first step in creating proficient writers is developing an understanding of why we write. If children are going to be willing and able participants in writing, they must understand purpose and audience. This activity shows how to discuss purposeful writing and provides a solid rationale as to why this is an important first step in literacy development.

It wasn’t until I read chapter nine in CTW that I realized the difference between revising and editing written work may be difficult for students to understand. Students need to know that revising is not editing and that each involves different strategies (CTW, p. 163). This anchor chart uses two mnemonics to clarify each process.

To become proficient writers, students need authentic opportunities to practice their writing and focused writing instruction. Chapter nine in CTW does an excellent job of explaining the writing strategies that apply to writing as well as the process of writing, revising, editing, and publishing involved in Writer’s Workshop. Given that Writer’s Workshop is so commonly used, I found it helpful to have a primer on how to conduct mini lessons and follow the process in a sequential manner.

Assessment

The 6+1 Traits model of instruction and assessment is based on the key elements of writing (Voice, Ideas, Conventions, Organization, Word Choice, Sentence Fluency, and Presentation). The traits give teachers a focus for their writing instruction and help to focus assessment, identify specific areas of student need and direct teaching and learning of how to write. The research-based rubrics are particularly helpful for new teachers since they specify how to assess students and tailor…

This article from Reading Rockets discusses a number of curriculum-based methods for assessing written expression and writing skills. It does a good job of explaining simple methods for assessing the five aspects of writing (fluency, content, conventions, syntax, and vocabulary) and the five-step conceptual model POWER. This was helpful to me because I have saw the POWER strategy during a practicum, but I had little understanding of how it is used for self-assessment and teacher observation.
