Demystifying Writing, Transforming Education
Schmoker, Mike
Educational Leadership, v75 n7 p22-27 Apr 2018
Schmoker argues that having students write regularly across the disciplines, connecting written work to content in the discipline to facilitate student understanding about content, would boost most students' academic achievement. We must "demystify" writing instruction, distilling it to key skills that any teacher can guide students to sharpen, using simple prompts and questions students write responses to. Schmoker provides examples of such prompts in all areas.
