FIRST DRAFT I begin the year with the Story Wheel for teaching organization for the First Draft as I teach the writing process. It gives the struggling writer a direction for writing and supports students in the organization of fiction stories.
RETELL Students also use the Story Wheel to retell stories that have been read. It helps to support the understanding of story elements and encourages student discussions. Students also use the wheel to retell the stories that other students have written during Writer’s Workshop as we begin learning how to discuss our writing with others.
