PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Do you sometimes wonder if you're giving students the most helpful advice at the right stage when you talk to them about their writing? Here, I have compiled a list of 79 thoughts, activities, and responses to give students during a writing conference. I have taught writing and writing workshop for over 20 years, and these are my most effective methods. In addition, I give a flow-chart of what to (generally) check for first, next, and so on when you see a student's draft. The flow chart has 11 steps (though not all need to be checked for every assignment) and each step recommends you to a corresponding area of advice. The areas of advice include:

GENERAL ADVICE
"I HAVE NOTHING TO WRITE"
ADDING CONTENT / ELABORATION
THESIS
DETAILS
THEME
ORGANIZATION
INTRODUCTION
CONCLUSIONS/CLINCHERS
LANGUAGE
TITLES
CONVENTIONS and SPELLING
REVISING POETRY
ENDING A POEM

Each area of advice has several suggestions below it from which to choose. This packet is perfect for use in a writing workshop or for the days you want to help your students with their drafts outside a workshop. It is a compilation of knowledge, experience, and trial and error from years and years of writing conferences!
