  • Middle grades students get really engaged in the drawing that they forget about the writing part, or they can’t translate to organizational structure. Need numbered notes or changes in visual structures. Match the organizational style to what students are able to do. If I can’t learn the way you teach, can you teach the way I learn?
  • Teachers are allowed to handout these organizers during testing. Want to make sure teachers know about these.
  • See previous
  • Help teachers understand we have to teach explicitly the Intro and conclusion and what do we mean by support, also how does it all go together, particularly for non-fiction writing.
  • Write Tools types of work,

  • They’ll have a sentence they’ll copy and they will develop their own sentence for them to find that same structure of a sentence in the literature then do a share out with that. They see it modeled, do it yourself, explore to find.
