Writing Ideas That Work
Fisher, Douglas; Frey, Nancy
Language and Literacy Spectrum, v16 p33-40 2006
Student writing performance has not appreciably improved in the past decade. While there is evidence that teachers assign more writing than in the past, performance has not kept pace. Three urban schools that experienced significant improvements in students' writing achievement were studied. To glean ideas and examples, the authors observed classroom teachers as they taught writing. In this article, the authors focus on specific instructional strategies used across grade levels by teachers to improve writing performance.
