How to Get Students Writing

Where to Start

Note: Just about every literacy lesson has a writing component to it where students can respond to the topic in their own words.

Use an inductive approach to get students finding noticing the grammar of the sentences used as well as the structure of the reading passage in the lesson.

You can also have students use TPR (total physical response) by associating a physical action with different parts of the reading passage.

After students have a good grasp of the reading passage, they can brainstorm their own ideas to put into their own writing. 

You can also have students cut up a paragraph from the passage or their own passage into its individual sentences. Then they mix the sentences up and try to put it back together again in the correct order.
