Secondary Micro-Level Writing Strategy Instruction [Part 1]

Speaking: Dr. Lana Edwards Santoro

Link to handouts: 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.
