Put It Into Practice

The videos, activities, and readings in this workshop illustrate effective practices, including using a writer's notebook, for helping students write authentically in different content areas. Now apply what you have learned to incorporate the writer's notebook in a subject area outside the writing workshop.


Writer's Notebook in Content Areas

Choose a writing topic based on a subject you and your students are studying or will study in a content area other than language arts. For a week or so, record your notes and your questions about this topic in your writer's notebook. Save your entries to submit as an assignment. You may also use the entries to demonstrate to your students how to use the writer's notebook to help develop authentic writing pieces in a content area.
