Examining the Impact of Explicit Language Instruction in Writers Workshop on ELL Student Writing
Wiley, Adrienne; McKernan, Jonathan
New Educator, v13 n2 p160-169 2017
In the context of our work as literacy specialists, we taught teachers to use sentence frames to support ELL students' writing. We then studied the impact of their instruction on students. Our analysis of student writing samples revealed no group wide developmental trends so we posed deeper questions about their work using the data analysis methods learned through the action research process. We report our findings about the relationship between student writing development and language instruction. We discuss our learning as well as implications for our work supporting teacher instruction.
