This is a PDF of the steps or phases in the writing process as inspired by Ralph Fletcher in his book, How Writers Work. Mr. Fletcher goes into great detail about the natural steps in the typical writing process that authors generally follow regardless of the genre of writing. This download includes attractive and student friendly pages that explain each step in the writing process. It also includes pages with just the name of the stage and a picture to go with it. Both can be printed and displayed in the classroom. You can also create a progress tracking system with clothespins or other clips for students to move their names along the writing process as they work.
