Writer’s Workshop follows a predictable format each day. We use the writer’s process and explore writing a variety of genres. Students have required pieces to complete (Response to Literature, Report, Persuasive Essay, Procedure, Narrative and Poetry) and self-select pieces they work on.
What does a writing class look like?
What are the steps in the writing process?
Students keep track of their progress in writing by using the writing process. Some pieces are brought through the full process and are published. Some pieces pieces are drafted and nothing further will be done with it. Some pieces are revisited later in the year and completed. All required pieces of writing are brought through the full writing process.
