Writer’s Workshops are a proven method to improve students’ understanding of the art of writing and the organization behind it. Workshops are based on the fact that students learn to write best when they do it frequently, for extended periods of time, after quick focused lessons.
This unit is a very simplistic structure for Writer's Workshops at an early years level. Used as a weekly journal, students are taught relevant writing techniques in a short lesson (not included). Students are asked to record the technique and use it in their weekly journal writing.
