During the timeframe I have worked, I have encountered many reluctant writers. Sometimes even seasoned teachers have trouble moving these students in the direction of engagement and total participation to meet the grade level requirements. I have designed several opportunities for these students to work collectively and collaboratively with their peers, in hopes of achieving success. You will find the directives for a small cohort writing activity that students generally like written below. This activity can be used with students who are in grades 5 -12. They will be able to meet the requirements of writing a Narrative Paragraph after following this directive.
