Buddinwriters Resilient Classrooms presents a student wheel. The wheel presents the Writing to Respond (WTR) approach to engaging students in habitual writing in a tactile manner, which makes it easy for students to follow the guided steps to writing in response to text and text prompts.
Students spin the wheel to reveal the next step. It allows students to progress at their own pace.
It works well in non- English classes because it is a resource for guiding writing across content.
Recommendation: Have one wheel per student in non-English classes.
Utilize with students on all levels. Great for ELL and ESE students.
Students perform well with their personal tactile guide.
This product works in collaboration with the book Writing to Respond to Text and Tests.
The wheel presents the steps while the book presents, more detailed step-by-step guide, teacher models, student samples, rubrics, and exercises for practice on Webb's Levels 2, 3 and 4.
