Becoming a competent and confident writer is an exciting process for learners. It can also be a demanding process.

Effective Writing Instruction provides teachers and students with the knowledge and skills to become active and engaged in the process of learning to write – and learning from writing. This resource  provides explicit support for effective classroom instruction in writing.

It provides many examples of how teachers can plan for and develop instructional approaches and activities that actively engage their learners in understanding and monitoring their own progress and achievement in writing. This includes specific approaches for:

  • developing effective writing instruction
  • understanding and using assessment to inform teaching
  • preparing students for writing
  • teaching approaches
  • purposes for writing
  • composing text
  • revising text
  • celebrating and responding to writing

The accompanying CD contains blackline masters and Graphic Organisers that can be used for independent, paired and small-group work during instruction, and as part of planned practice and maintenance throughout the year. The Graphic Organisers also provide explicit models of formative assessment of writing practices and strategies.

 

Effective Writing Instruction is an essential resource for all teachers of writing.
