Reaffirming the Writing Workshop for Young Adolescents
Lain, Sheryl
Voices from the Middle, v14 n3 p20-28 Mar 2007
Students who engage in the writing process learn to write. Period. And yet many teachers, including Lain when she was a beginning teacher, don't know how to make the time for it, how to structure it, and how to evaluate it. Here, Lain offers us the help we need by focusing on the teaching tools for introducing students to this format, the mini-lessons that cover an array of writing strategies, the writing modes--transactional, poetry, fiction, creative writing--that promise variety, and the importance of conferencing and publishing student writing.
