Initiating a Writing Revolution in Your School
Bickmore, Dana L.; Bickmore, Steven T.; Dowell, Margaret-Mary Sulentic
Principal Leadership, v13 n5 p34-38, 40 Jan 2013
Writing instruction is central to the implementation of the Common Core State Standards. It is embedded across all curricula. Under the Common Core guidelines, students must produce writing that includes not only narrative and literary responses as part of the language arts curriculum but also argumentative and informative/explanatory texts in such subjects as science and math. To ensure high-quality writing instruction, school leaders must first assess what writing teachers are already doing in the classroom. The next step is having a schoolwide conversation about how teachers define writing and what they know about teaching it. To assess how writing is actually taught, the authors suggest using a set of tools they developed. The first tool is a teacher writing bingo card. A bingo card tool helps organize information and promotes professional conversations that improve teacher capacity. (Contains 2 figures.)
