Of all the arts, writing should be among the most democratic: The goal is for students to improve their writing and simultaneously develop myriad approaches to writing that empower students to effectively evaluate and improve their own writing and thinking.
To this end, students will participate in writing workshops of at least forty-five minutes three to five times a week. The writing workshop begins with a mini-lesson of five to thirty minutes and continues with independent writing, during which time I circulate among writers and meet with individuals or small groups.
At any point during the writing workshop, students may share their written work in progress and receive constructive feedback from their peers and me. The writing workshop may conclude with this oral student sharing of written work, with a group discussion of what writers accomplished or what problems emerged, with my observations, or with a follow-up to the mini-lesson.
The writing workshop is a quiet and productive period. Writing is thinking so silence is needed to help all writers think and write well. The only noise besides pencils moving across paper is the quiet talking that occurs during writing conferences.
During the writing workshop, students develop most of their own writing projects, even during genre studies, writing passionately about what matters most to them. The writing workshop mini-lessons provide a writing course of study. They draw on a combination of impromptu lessons based on student need and lessons that incorporate key writing instruction critical for every sixth grade student.
The mini-lessons fall into four distinct categories: Students will also create a mini-lessons table of contents for ease of later reference.
Some, but by no means all, of the writing mini-lessons are posted here.Dear Twitpic Community - thank you for all the wonderful photos you have taken over the years.
