Well, whether you use Traits Writing, Lucy Calkins or other writing curriculum in your school, writing process is always something that is heavily emphasized in the beginning of the year and reinforced throughout. A lot of the times when it comes to teaching writing, students are easily confused on what they need to do since they do not see a holistic picture of where their writing is going, and I found using this chart extremely helpful in teaching students not only the writing process itself, but also the specific academic languages that come with it.Here is how I use the chart:
1. Print out and laminate
2. Post the chart in the classroom
3. Use a clip pin or magnet to represent each student. They move their clip/magnet as they are moving along the writing process. This provides an easy visual for you as well as themselves in regards to where they are in their writing.
4. If a student is confused in what to do in a specific step, redirect them to read the short and precise description for that step. i.e. 发表：分享你的写作
Note: for the Editing (编辑) step, I've put a visual of the editing chart we use in the classroom next to it as a reminder that this is the step that utilizes the editing chart. This chart is sold separately in my store.
