All you need is one week. Is your writing time not working for you? Are you fed up? Are your students fed up?
No worries! In just one week (5 writing lessons) you will have a flawless writing time. Just follow these simple steps!
Continue using a Writer’s Workshop model in your classroom by choosing a “focus”, such as Narrative Writing or Informative Writing. Each day, choose one small focus, teach a mini lesson on that focus, and challenge students to use what they’ve learned in their writing during Independent Writing time. They can write anything they want during Independent Writing Time. At the end of each lesson, make sure they have time to share their hard work!
