Successive, Progressive Strategies for Improving Students' Writing
Replace “Writing from the Past” with strategies that deliver learning success…
Make writing targets manageable and specific…
“Fixing Everything; teaches nothing.”
Overwhelmed students edit the draft…while learning nothing!
Quick and easy, short reports teach basic writing, even if you teach other subjects.
Assign template-based essay assignments to ensure that students build successive writing skills.
Set a writing focus for each discussion thread or discussion question. Watch students learn writing skills as “Secondary Gain.”
Build rotating journal targets, one improvement strategy per journal entry.
