Interactive Writing beyond the Primary Grades
Wall, Heather
Reading Teacher, v62 n2 p149-152 Oct 2008
While interactive writing has typically been utilized and researched in the primary grades, little has been written about its use with older students. The author briefly describes the historic use of interactive writing, along with appropriate research, then goes on to describe its use in her third-grade classroom as a tool to teach writer's craft as well as phonetic, structural, and grammatical rules. Specific skills for upper-grade students are addressed, as well as positive results observed in the teacher's classroom. Excerpts of a typical lesson are described to give readers a clear picture of how it might be implemented in their classrooms. Interactive writing is presented as an authentic and rich writing tool for students and teachers. (Contains 2 figures.)
