PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Writing fluency! The Fifteen Minute Quickwrite Unit arms teachers with a writing tool that will increase how much students can write during a timed writing assessment. It also gives students a lifetime skill of improved writing fluency that will help them meet future writing goals.

Students should write in active voice and show, not tell, what is happening in the quickwrites. Dialogue can also add much to the voice in the story. Description is an important part of the activity.

Students begin writing for 15 minutes choosing a topic from four pages of suggestions. As the year progresses, the time increases by five-minute intervals and the writing goal expands from one-half a page in August to four pages in May.

No rubrics are included as this is writing for fun! Students will receive points for writing, but this is not a conventions lesson. Students will keep writing files of individual writings with the idea that they might expand the quickwrite into a portfolio piece at a later time.

Teachers may opt to use the writing topics in classroom notebooks as a group project.

Four pages of suggested writing prompts are included as well as an exit pass for the year long activity.
