Teaching Elementary School Students to Be Effective Writers: Instructional Tips Based on the Educator's Practice Guide
What Works Clearinghouse
Instructional tips help educators carry out recommendations contained in IES Educator's Practice Guides. The tips, based on a practice guide authored by Steve Graham, Alisha Bollinger, Carol Booth Olson, Catherine D'Aoust, Charles MacArthur, Deborah McCutchen, and Natalie Olinghouse, translate these recommendations into actionable approaches that educators can try in their classrooms. This brief document provides instructional tips for: (1) assisting students to use strategies for writing; (2) teaching students to write for a variety of purposes; and (3) helping students write strong sentences. These tips are based on "Teaching Elementary School Students to Be Effective Writers: A Practice Guide. NCEE 2012-4058" (ED533112).
