All students experience writer's block at some point. This handout is a resource for students to keep pasted in their notebook. It explains that writing can be challenging but it is worth it. It defines some of the purposes for writing.
It breaks down 5 causes of writer's block along with practical, age-appropriate strategies for overcoming each (some students may feel they fall into more than one category).
In a clearly presented design, it is a helpful source to guide students and possibly boost their confidence in writing.
This can be used as a mini-lesson where students select the block and strategies that relate to them and then apply them.
