Giving Students the Right Kind of Writing Practice
Gallagher, Kelly; Kittle, Penny
Educational Leadership, v75 n7 p14-20 Apr 2018
High school teachers Gallagher and Kittle describe a 9-week unit on writing a narrative they created (and taught at their respective schools) that gave students many chances to practice different elements of writing a story. Their unit "spiraled" students back to key skills at each step, giving extended writing practice often lacking in teaching K-12 learners to write.
