Teaching Writing as a Process: Examine the Topic

Examine the Topic

Apply Guidelines to Classrooms

In this section, you will explore an activity to better understand the Guidelines for Creating a Positive Writing Environment.

In all curriculum areas, teachers provide opportunities for students to learn and communicate their ideas by writing. Children improve their writing skills by recording their own experiences and responding to classroom activities.

The interactive activity: Apply Guidelines to Classrooms, uses the Guidelines to analyze classroom writing activities. A non-interactive version of this activity is available as a PDF document.


Apply Guidelines to Classrooms

After exploring the classrooms, consider these questions:

  • What was the purpose of the writing activity?
  • What else might you have done during this writing time? How might you encourage the students to take their writing through the writing process?
