What does the research say?


•Work with your PLC. If your PLC has more than 5, split into two groups.


•Divide the article:

–Have Students Write About the Text they Read (p. 13-14)

–Have Students Respond to a Text (p. 14-15)

–Have Students Write Summaries of a Text (p. 15-16)

–Have Students Write Notes About a Text (p. 16)

–Have Students Answer Questions About a Text in Writing, or Create and Answer Written Questions About a Text (p. 17)

PLC Work

With your PLC, explore the writing frame resources here: https://drive.google.com/a/iss.k12.nc.us/folderview?id=0B8SYys6pkLTFWXdXTnhmdGhrUTA&usp=sharing


Over the next few weeks, find or create a writing frame that will work in your content area. Use the writing frame with your students and share results/report feedback in your PLC.

Takeaways

  • Text structure is different across content areas.
  • It's our job to teach students the structure of the text we expect them to understand.
  • Writing frames are a perfect way to teach text structure.
  • Students need to respond to EVERY content in writing because writing builds comprehension of concepts by forcing linguistic structure. This is imperative for memory.
