WRITE RIGHT!

WRITE RIGHT!       WRITE DAILY!!      WRITE COPIOUSLY!!!

As I reflect on my teaching career, there is one area I did not give adequate attention – WRITING. Only in the last three years, was I able to fully understand how to incorporate reading, writing, listening, and speaking into a 75 minute block effectively and efficiently. No matter your content, students MUST read, write, listen and speak daily.

Dave Stuart publishes a wonderful graphic to assist teachers in ensuring writing is happening daily. He also stresses quantity over quality, at the beginning of the year, to get our students accustomed to writing.

The graphic is below. For those of you interested in the entire article, I have added the link – http://www.davestuartjr.com/pyramid-writing-priorities/.

REMEMBER: No matter your content, students must read, write, listen, and speak on a daily basis.

Thank you!
