Secondary Micro-Level Writing Strategy Instruction


Session Dates

Thursday September 29, 2022 8:30 AM - 11:45 AM - Webinar

This event is by invitation only. You must have a registration key in order to register.

This session will focus on the use of instructional strategies to support micro-level writing instruction at the secondary level (grades 4-12) for students who struggle with writing skills. While handwriting, keyboarding, and spelling will be discussed, emphasis will focus on how to explicitly teach sentence analysis and construction using the “Identify-Expand-Combine- and Create” strategy. Other strategies, including the use of grammar building charts and sentence unscrambling, will be presented.


Participants will be able to:

  • Explain the role of spelling in the writing process, with particular attention paid to what effective spelling instruction looks like
  • Explain the role of sentence structure in the overall writing process
  • List the elements of sentences and explain how they interact to build meaning
  • Use the Identify-Expand-Combine-Create Strategy
