Written Expression Instruction: From the Paragraph to the Essay Grades K-5

July 26, 2012

Composing written products is a demanding skill for any individual, but is particularly difficult for struggling students. Dr. Archer will present a model that divides written expression instruction into two components: 1) teaching the attributes of the written product utilizing a standard-based rubric and illustrating it with an example (WHAT), and 2) teaching the process of writing using writing frames, strategies, and think sheets to scaffold the writing process (HOW). These instructional components will be demonstrated with a number of written genre that reflect the demands of the state standards. Handouts: 1.) Part 1: Writing Foundations – This is the first PowerPoint to accompany the presentation. 2.) Part 2: Writing Genre – This is a second PowerPoint. 3.) Part 2: Writing Common Core – This is the third PowerPoint. 4.) Part 2: Writing Examples – These examples are based on the program REWARDS Writing currently in development. 5.) Writing Foundation Examples – Kindergarten through Grade 5
