Classroom Excerpts

In this section, you will relate Dr. Paratore's lecture and your readings to teaching practices in classroom excerpts.

Now you will observe two kindergarten classes during writing time. As you watch, pay close attention to how the teachers prepare students to write and support them as they draft and revise text.

Video Segment.

Classroom Excerpts

A workshop participant.

Find this segment approximately 13 minutes and 55 seconds after the begining of the video. Watch for about 11 1/2 minutes.

After watching the classroom excerpts, consider these questions:

  • How was the writing instruction of both teachers similar? How was it different?
  • What was the purpose of asking children to label their pictures before writing?
  • How did John Sinnett address individual needs within his whole-class setting?
  • How did Cindy Wilson enable students in the class to support each other in their writing?
