HOW DOES THIS RELATE TO COMMON CORE WRITING INSTRUCTION?
Students must be able to quickly develop arguments, develop reasons, and locate evidence to support an argument. As students are asked to write more frequently and more rapidly, they need quick references to scaffold complex processes like the writing process.
Students also need authentic writing workshops. This quick reference guides students with key steps through each aspect of the writing process to support the development, revision, and publication of writing.
HOW DO I USE IT?
Print and give to all students. Have students use while writing as a scaffold to support independent writing.
Hang it in your room as a constant reference for students.
Make the writing process sticky with a key idea and accompanying graphic for each step.
