    3. 3. The Case for Need <ul><li>“ Along with reading comprehension, writing skill is a predictor of academic success and a basic requirement for participation in civic life and in the global economy.” </li></ul><ul><li>“ Every year in the U.S. large numbers of adolescents graduate from high school unable to write at the basic levels required by colleges or employers.” </li></ul>
    4. 4. Writing Next Report <ul><li>Eleven Elements of Effective Adolescent Writing Instruction </li></ul><ul><li>Writing strategies: involves teaching students strategies for planning, revising, and editing their writing </li></ul><ul><li>Summarization: involves explicitly and systematically teaching students how to summarize texts </li></ul>
    5. 5. Writing Next Report <ul><ul><li>Collaborative writing: uses instructional arrangements in which students work together to plan, draft, revise and edit </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Specific product goals: assigns students specific, reachable goals for their writing </li></ul><ul><li>Word Processing: uses computers and word processors as instructional supports for writing assignments </li></ul>
    6. 6. Writing Next Report <ul><li>Sentence Combining: involves teaching students to construct more complex, sophisticated sentences </li></ul><ul><li>Prewriting: engages students in activities designed to help them generate or organize ideas for their writing </li></ul><ul><li>Inquiry Activities: engages students in analyzing immediate, concrete data to help them develop ideas and content </li></ul>
    7. 7. Writing Next Report <ul><li>Process Writing Approach: interweaves a number of writing instructional activities in a workshop environment that stresses extended writing opportunities, writing for authentic audiences, personalized instruction, and cycles of writing </li></ul><ul><li>Study of Models: provides students with opportunities to read, analyze, and emulate models of good writing </li></ul>
    8. 8. Writing Next Report <ul><li>Writing for Content Learning: using writing as a tool for learning content material </li></ul><ul><li>This one is more than just taking notes!!  </li></ul>

    10. 10. Did you notice what was not in the list?
    11. 11. Writing Strategies <ul><li>Teaching students strategies for planning, revising, and editing their writing </li></ul><ul><li>Goal: teach students to use the strategies independently </li></ul><ul><li>Transportable – a part of their student “bag of tricks” to be pulled out and used as needed </li></ul><ul><li>Transparent – part of the landscape </li></ul>
    12. 12. Writing Strategies <ul><li>You Speak/I Write Strategy: http://www.gse.buffalo.edu/org/writingstrategies/6-12youspeakIwrite.htm </li></ul><ul><li>Writing Strategies: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>http://www.gse.buffalo.edu/org/writingstrategies/6-12.htm </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Purdue University – OWL </li></ul><ul><ul><li>http://owl.english.purdue.edu/handouts/general/ </li></ul></ul>

    15. 15. Collaborative Writing <ul><li>Workplace activities involve project teams </li></ul><ul><li>Students can take advantage of group members for built-in peer review </li></ul><ul><li>Collaborative writing assignments usually entail much less grading time for the instructor </li></ul><ul><li>Not all writing assignments can be converted from individual writing tasks to group writing tasks, nor should they all. </li></ul>
