Helping Your Reluctant Writers

February 24, 2016

There are many reasons students may be reluctant to write: some think they cannot write well, leading to frustration and an unwillingness to try. Other students may feel the pressure of getting a good grade, always trying to perfect their assignments. ELL students face the difficult task of building fluency in a language while trying to build their writing skills.
 
Luckily, there are several strategies you can use to encourage your reluctant writers to practice more and see improvement in their writing.

Constructed Response Scoring

The Writing Process: Working Collaboratively

December 14, 2015

The writing process does not happen in a vacuum. In order to improve writing skills, it is important for students to receive feedback and opportunities for revision. This is the belief behind PEG Writing. As soon as students submit an essay, they receive feedback and use it to revise their work. Once they are ready to share their work, students can also request reviews from peers or ask questions of their teachers. These features foster a collaborative environment in the classroom.
