The Writing-Centered Classroom
Spycher, Pam; Austin, Kim; Fabian, Thea
Educational Leadership, v75 n7 p54-59 Apr 2018
The authors discuss how Rowell Elementary School in California transformed instruction putting writing at the center of student learning. This shift involved helping students demystify how language works in different genres and creating authentic, meaningful writing opportunities for students, often involving cross-curriculum projects. Through professional development and displays of student work, the school also worked to build a shared culture of practice around writing.
