Writing Processes & Strategies

The writing process is defined by the series of tasks children complete when producing a written assignment. For example, before children can publish a story, they must go through a planning and writing stage. Furthermore, it is important for educators to use a variety of strategies to ensure children are adequately supported throughout the writing process.This board contains activities, resources to enhance understanding and assessment tools to help children express their ideas through print!

Chapters 9 and 10 in Classrooms That Work, describe the writing process and different strategies educators can use to integrate writing in various subject areas. The authors, Cunningham and Allington, deepened my understanding of Writer's and Editor's Workshop. I also learned that time lines and main idea trees can help students develop their understanding of topics. For example, students can use a main idea tree for research assignments after they read non-fiction texts.

A success criteria checklist is one of the tools students can use to monitor their progress throughout the writing process. I created and utilized this checklist in my junior placement to help students complete a report writing assignment. It not only encouraged the students to evaluate the content they included in the assignment, but writing conventions as well. Furthermore, I believe educators can simplify the success criteria for students in elementary grades.

One of the most effective ways to engage students in the writing process is by creating interesting activities. Educators can develop tasks that are cross-curricular as well. For this activity, I incorporated math and language. The students were instructed to create a three panel story board to describe the evolution of a shape made from tangram pieces. Furthermore, this type of activity can be adapted for students throughout the elementary grades.

The scoring for early years print task used in Dr. Pelletier's Kindergarten class is an example of an assessment that can be used to evaluate the progression of students' writing abilities in the early years. I believe educators can use this tool to influence their instruction. For example, if a SK student is still in the drawing phase and doesn't engage in inventive spelling, they may require explicit letter formation instruction.

Caretti and colleagues (2013) evaluated the writing performance of good and poor comprehenders. I believe the results of this study can provide educators with a better understanding of why some students experience difficulties with specific writing tasks. Moreover, this article can help educators adapt their instruction. For example, poor comprehenders may require individualized support during narrative writing tasks.

Writing can be an overwhelming task, however, I believe incorporating this acronym into a classroom can allow all students to be successful. The acronym encourages students to view the writing process in smaller segments. For example, before writing students will need to complete a brainstorming activity.  Furthermore, TOWER allows educators to monitor a student's writing progress and adapt instruction.

Graphic organizers are one of the tools educators can use to ensure that all students are successful during the writing process. They can also be adapted to meet the needs of students throughout the elementary grades. For example, students in the primary grades may require space in their graphic organizer to draw a picture. I used this organizer successfully in 2 of my placements during narrative writing units.
