Developing Your Academic Voice: An Organizer for Student Reference
Print and teach--then watch your students refer to this resource again and again throughout the school year! Great for the first weeks of school to set expectations for academic writing.
Help your students understand the components of academic voice in their writing with this organizer. Students will record examples and explain why each component of academic voice is important. They will also provide their own definitions, paired with class definitions, of the principles of academic writing (thesis, focus, coherence, organization, vocabulary, mechanics). Finally, students will reflect on the role those principles play in creating academic voice.
This handout is easy to use as a whole class or guided note-taker; you could even use it as a pre- or post-assessment. A teacher notes page is provided with explanations, examples (when relevant), and definitions.
